Professor Jan Glazewski Retires

16 Nov 2018 - 06:00

After almost 34 years of service to UCT generally, the Law Faculty and IMEL in particular, Professor Jan Glazewski retires at the end of 2019. Having joined the Institute shortly after its formation, Jan has over the years inspired many to become fascinated in and study environmental law. The breadth of his influence and impact was evidenced by the audience at his Valedictory Lecture held in the Oliver Tambo Moot Court on 14 November 2018, following which he was presented with a box of selected “Jan’s Valedictory Wine”. Jan will remain an Emeritus Professor of the Faculty of Law where he continues to supervise several PhD students. All at IMEL wish him much well-deserved relaxation whilst he dabbles in his garden in McGregor, explores the Polish moors and continues to write intriguing novels and update his book under the shade of a tree.
