The two articles that follow represent the edited versions of two inaugural lectures, delivered in 2009 in the subject area of Jurisprudence, respectively at the University of Cape Town (Professor Anton Fagan) and the University of Pretoria (Professor Karin van Marle). These lectures arguably represent much of what is taught and written about in jurisprudence (or the philosophy of law) across post-apartheid South Africa. Both these lectures raise, in very different ways, the fundamental question about the kind of transformation the South African legal system (still) needs to undergo in order to be true to the post-apartheid constitutional mandate.
