n Acta Juridica - Tribute to Solly Leeman




I count it as one of the blessings of my life to have been taught by Israel 'Solly' Leeman whilst studying for my law degree at University of Cape Town in the early seventies. In those days he was responsible for teaching a large number of courses, including comparative law, copyright and conflict of laws, but his great love, and the course in which he truly excelled, was criminal law. Although all of his teaching was of a very high standard, it was his lectures in criminal law that earned him a well-deserved reputation as the best lecturer in the Law Faculty, and which made such a deep and lasting impression on his students. The esteem in which they held him, and still hold him, was evident to all who attended the function to mark his retirement from full-time teaching at the end of 2000. Seldom have we in the Faculty witnessed such a genuine and spontaneous outpouring of admiration, affection and respect as on that occasion.
