A student is eligible to register for the programme of B Juris if he/she holds a School Leaving Certificate entitling him/her to degree studies i.e. Namibian Senior Secondary Certificate (NSSC) Ordinary of Higher Level or a recognized equivalent qualification. A student must obtain a minimum of 30 scores in five subjects according to the UNAM rating with at least a C symbol in English as a Second Language or higher.
Applicants seeking admission to the B Juris programme as mature students must satisfy mature age entry qualifications as prescribed in the General Information and Regulations Prospectus.
Admission to the B Juris programme will be based on merit and will depend on places available (i.e. the capacity of the Faculty). Therefore, the mere satisfaction of the minimum entrance requirements will not guarantee admission to the B Juris programme.

The Faculty reserves the right to interview any applicant before admission to the B Juris programme. .
