The Constitutional Court is now in its fourteenth year of work. During those years, it has developed a formidable jurisprudence addressing issues as important as they have been varied. As a number of the justices on the bench are set to retire during 2009 and the place of the Constitutional Court as the apex court in constitutional matters is hotly debated, it is perhaps a good time to reflect on the work of the Court thus far. Since the Court began its work in 1995, the SAJHR has published an annual series on the work of the Court in the preceding year, presented in the form of a statistical analysis. The principal rationale for this series has been to identify any developing trends in the functioning of the Court.
