Tony Honoré is one of the most distinguished South African law academics. His long career – first as a law don at Queen’s College, Oxford then successor to Professor R.W. Lee as last Rhodes Reader in Roman-Dutch law at Oxford – culminated in his appointment to the Regius Chair in Civil Law at All Souls College, Oxford, from which he retired some years ago.
His pre-eminence in the fields of Roman law, Roman-Dutch and modern South African law and legal philosophy (his Causation in the Law, with Professor H.L.A. Hart, is still a leading text) is internationally recognised.
The quality and significance of the formal lectures presented at this gathering was such that Professor Danie Visser (Deputy Vice-Chancellor at UCT) and Professor Max Loubser (another former student of Professor Honoré and member of the Faculty of Law at Stellenbosch University) undertook to edit the papers for publication.
