THE SOUTH AFRICAN JUDICIARY
The Constitutional Court
On December 2012, the Constitution 17th Amendment Act was passed into law and it entrenched the Constitutional Court as the highest court in the land and its decisions cannot be changed by any other court
The Constitutional Court was born out of the country's first democratic Constitution in 1994. It is currently housed in an acclaimed building at Constitution Hill, and it is presided over by 11 Judges who stand guard over the Constitution and protect everyone's human rights.
When a person, an organisation or a company is not satisfied with any decision of the High Court on any matter; they can approach the Constitutional Court for a review of that decision. Normal appeal matters are however dealt with at the Supreme Court of Appeal.
