The Journal of Anti-Corruption Law is a project of the Department of Criminal Justice and Procedure in the Faculty of Law at the University of the Western Cape. It is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal which publishes articles, case notes and comments on any issue relevant to corruption in particular and to economic crimes in general.
