Criminal Law, Hesca has been his tower of strength with the yearly examining process. At present Tiaan is also appointed as Internal Moderator for Ethnology as well as Criminology (Grade 12)
During the past few years of examining it became evident that candidates don't have access to study material or that they have information to their disposal that doesn't comply with the curriculum. S.A. Crimanal Law Made Easy, is a dedicated effort to reach out to candidates with a study aid that is –
- summarised and arranged for easy learning
- learner friendly and affordable and
- still complies with the prescribed syllabus
S.A. Criminal Law provides many opportunities for a person's future. In a country where crime reigns supreme, knowledge of this subject has become appropriate for almost every career in the private and public sectors. This subject is also of personal- and public interest for every citizen that wants to be part of a brighter future for South Africa.
