The information in this brochure is applicable to all 2nd -, 3rd - and 4th year LLB
students who wish to register for 2009. All students (except those transferring
from other universities or faculties) are expected to register online at the SOS
webpage at https://www.up.ac.za/virtualcampus/sos/login.do .

The procedure is simple and user-friendly. Online registration opens on 5
January and closes on 23 January 2009. You may use the computer
laboratory in the Law Building during office hours to register online. Only in
exceptional cases should students register in person at the Law faculty’s
administration office.

1. GENERAL INFORMATION

      Registration for modules that result in class -, test - or examination time
       table clashes are not allowed. (See documents included)
      Information sessions for each course and year are presented according
       to the timetable given in point 4 and should be attended only by
       students who experienced problems with online registration.
      We recommend that you do not take more than 8 modules per
       semester. You may however, in extraordinary instances, register for a
       maximum of 10 modules per semester. Permission must be granted by
       the Student Affairs Committee of the Faculty of Law if you want to
       register for more than 10 modules.

      LLB finalists will get a chance to decide for which three elective
       modules they want to register, but the final registration date for these
       modules is 9 February. No changes will be possible thereafter.
       Registration for elective modules will be done by Ms Rina Malan in the
       Student Administration office. Online registration does not make
       provision for the registration of elective modules. Contact Ms. Malan at
       012 420 2290 if you have any enquiries.
      Students, who are prevented from continuing their studies due to
       regulation G.3.2, must apply for re-admission to the Dean of the
       Faculty of Law before 6 January 2009 before registration can take
       place.
