It is a great honour to deliver the first Claude Leon lecture here at the University of Cape Town. I am grateful for this opportunity to speak to and exchange views with members of the academic community present, including law students. I am told that the Claude Leon Foundation has recently endowed a Chair in Constitutional Governance at the University of Cape Town. This is commendable. The legal academy is vital to the rule of law: it produces future lawyers, advocates, and judges; it helps guide the growth of legislation and jurisprudence through its insight and inspiration; and, of course, it is the source of some constructive criticism of legal developments that helps to keep the judiciary efficient and upright.
