Master of Laws Degree for Former KZN MEC
Former MEC for Finance and Education in KwaZulu-Natal, Ms Ina Cronje, was awarded a Master of Laws degree for a dissertation titled: The Constitutional Obligations and Authority of Provincial Organs of State in South Africa to Protect the Environment Through Reasonable Legislative Measures. She worked under the supervision of environmental law expert and UKZN academic Professor Michael Kidd. Cronje went into legal practice after completing her political career as MEC for Finance a few years ago. According to Kidd part of the inspiration for this dissertation title came from work that he and Cronje were doing in drafting new biodiversity legislation for KZN.
