legal opinion - student protest

In late 2016, the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (CASAC) commissioned a legal opinion from SERI on the restraint of protest in or near university campuses.

The opinion aims to address the constitutional rights to the freedom of expression, bodily integrity and the rights of detained and arrested persons. The legal opinion also takes cognisance of the judgments dealing with the right to protest.
