Education law is a rapidly developing field of law, which has become very important, particularly in the wake of the new constitutional dispensation and transformation in education. The most important source of South African law is the Republic of South Africa Constitution Act of 1996. This study is about the law, furthered to primarily focus on the application of the law in the public education sector and its implications for the work situation. The chapters in this monograph are as follows: An introduction to the history of South African law; What is the law?; The supreme law; What is education law?; Law and rights; Sources of the law; The interpretation of the Constitution and legislation; The reading of court cases; Enforcement of education law.
