A new South African law blog has come onto the scene - For Voet's Sake. It's a team blog with contributions from several young South Africans, some of them graduate students in law at the University of Cape Town and a couple of others clerking at the constitutional court (as far as I understand it). The blog has the potential to speak about all kinds of interesting topics and to offer high quality but accessible insights into the functioning and practice of constitutional law in South Africa. Two of the bloggers [David Watson and Emma Webber far left and middle in the picture] are former colleagues of mine during my volunteer work with the Township Debating League at the University of Cape Town. One of the recent posts states the blog's aim: 'To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly blog abot things no one wanted to blog about before.' Good luck to them, at least about the blogging. I'm less certain about the new worlds and civilizations.
