Jennica Beukes

Addressing state capture at the local level of government

Jennica is a law student at the University of Western Cape. In 2017, she completed her LLB degree. Jennica is currently in the process of completing her LLM in Law, State and Multilevel Government for which she has already successfully completed Local Government Law and Constitutional Rights Interpretation.

During her studies, she obtained 14 distinctions, six of which were obtained in her final year. She was also a member of the Top Achievers Programme for three consecutive years and a recipient of an invitation to the Golden Key International Honour Society for being part of the top 15% at the University of the Western Cape.

At present, she is conducting research on governance in municipalities and co-writing a paper on the expungement of criminal records in South Africa. Following the completion of her LLM degree, she hopes to be accepted to study for a PhD and to be able to make a valuable contribution to society with her thesis. Her aim is to help shape the future of South Africa in a manner that is aligned with the prescripts of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
