John Dugard became a professor of law at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) School of Law exactly four decades ago, in 1969. It was a brave appointment - an academic lawyer of unflinchingly liberal commitment at a time of acute illiberal oppression. It was a promotion that was to garner Wits no favour with the authorities, for Dugard soon showed that his concept of professorial research did not involve quietly burrowing away in the Wits law library.
