VAN MARLE, Karin. Hold onto critical jurisprudence. Law democr. Dev. [online]. 2019, vol.23, pp.202-2018. ISSN 2077-4907.

The main aim of this article is to reflect tentatively on the importance of a continuing critical jurisprudence. By thinking about the lives and legacies of the late Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and his second wife, Winnie Madikizela Mandela, I want to reconsider a specific kind of critical jurisprudence, with particular attention to the issue of constitutionalism. I argue for a critical jurisprudence that responds to the many complexities that South African society faces , with nuance - not broad strokes and generalizations ; with care, neither aggressive nor defensive; and with thought, not strategic or calculated. I am of the view that this third position also has an important, albeit minor, place in legal scholarship and legal education and most pertinently in the LLB curriculum.

Palavras-chave : Critical Jurisprudence; Constitution As Living Document; LLB Curriculum; Arendt; Derrida; Nelson Mandela; Winnie Mandela.
