TL;DR: In this paper, the authors argue that the right to freedom of religion depends for its constitutional validity and viability on there being no interference (or regulation) by the state except in instances as provided for in terms of relevant legislation.
Abstract: In democratic pluralistic and secular societies, freedom of religion is a fundamental right to be enjoyed by all individuals and religious organisations. A unique feature of this human right is the extent to which it is premised on a personal belief. The latter can be "bizarre, illogical or irrational", but nevertheless deserving of protection in the interests of freedom of religion. However, when the expression of a religious belief or practice transgresses the civil or criminal law it must be dealt with in the relevant legislative framework to hold the transgressor liable. Measures taken by the state to regulate religious bodies in terms of a general supervisory council or umbrella body are an unreasonable and unjustifiable interference with freedom of religion, and hence unconstitutional. I am of the view that the right to freedom of religion depends for its constitutional validity – and viability – on there being no interference (or regulation) by the state except in instances as provided for in terms of relevant legislation.

TL;DR: Applied Law for Police Officials as mentioned in this paper is a textbook available in English and Afrikaans for police officials that focuses on supplying police officials with knowledge and understanding of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence.
Abstract: In observing the importance of the rule of law, Bingham stated the following: "The hallmarks of a regime which flouts the rule of law are, alas, all too familiar: the midnight knock on the door, the sudden disappearance, the show trial, the subjection of prisoners to genetic experimentation, the confession extracted by torture, the gulag and the concentration camp, the gas chamber, the practice of genocide or ethnic cleansing, the waging of aggressive war. The list is endless. Better to put up with some choleric judges and greedy lawyers" (The Rule of Law (2010) 9). Applied Law for Police Officials is a textbook available in English and Afrikaans for police officials. It is a revised and updated fourth edition which focuses on supplying police officials with knowledge and understanding of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence. This corpus of information is conveyed against the backdrop of the constitution and other relevant legislation, in particular the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977. The book consists of 20 chapters.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors argue that although the contract of employment is not a panacea to the employment relationship, it is useful and expedient when interpreted and enforced against the backdrop of constitutional imperatives.
Abstract: The disparity of power in the employment relationship has courted argument that this imbalance continues to be perpetuated in the guise of "the contract of employment", thereby rendering the contract of employment irrelevant and ineffective in advancing labour law rights. This article counters this view by illustrating the changed nature of the traditional foundation of the employment relationship, known as the contract of employment. The advent of a constitution and our courts' willingness to develop and strengthen rights and obligations arising from the contract of employment are considered. In addition, the impact of legislation, collective bargaining and the recent more purposive interpretation of the statutory definition of "employee" are discussed. The writers conclude that, although the contract of employment is not a panacea to the employment relationship, it is useful and expedient when interpreted and enforced against the backdrop of constitutional imperatives.

TL;DR: Heroorweging van the oppergesag van die reg and legaliteits beginningsel: geregtelike ergernis of lisensie? as discussed by the authors. But the eenvoudige uitoefening van openbare and private mag hang af van wat redelik is.
Abstract: Heroorweging van die oppergesag van die reg en legaliteitsbeginsel: geregtelike ergernis of lisensie? Die eenvoudige uitoefening van openbare en private mag hang af van wat redelik is. Proporsionaliteit en rasionaliteit moet as noodsaaklike bestanddele van redelikheid dien. Intrinsiek gekoppel aan voorgenoemde is die rol wat deur die oppergesag van die reg en die legaliteitsbeginsel vervul word, wat 'n onderdeel van die oppergesag van die reg is. As 'n fundamentele beginsel van grondwetlike reg, beperk die legaliteitsbeginsel die magte wat in die besonder deur die uitvoerende gesag en wetgewer uitgeoefen word op so 'n wyse dat hulle geen mag kan uitoefen behalwe wat aan hulle verleen is ingevolge die reg nie - om anders te handel, is om ultra vires op die tree. Administratiefreg en die hersiening van die uitoefening van mag maak op die legaliteitsbeginsel staat. Artikel 33 van die 1996-grondwet verseker die reg op regverdige administratiewe optrede. Die Wet op die Bevordering van Administratiewe Geregtigheid 3 van 2000 gee gevolg daaraan. Die outeur redeneer dat konseptuele probleme en ingewikkeldhede van die Wet op die Bevordering van Administratiewe Geregtigheid meer gedoen het om hersieningsaansoeke kragtens die Wet op die Bevordering van Administratiewe Geregtigheid te benewel as inspireer, wat veroorsaak dat litigante, akademici en regters na die meer soepel en minder gekompliseerde regsmiddele wat aangebied kan word, kyk deur hulle op die legaliteitsbeginsel te beroep. Die doel van die artikel is om op die soepel aard van die legaliteitsbeginsel te fokus en die mate waarin dit in administratiefregtelike hersiening aangewend kan word. Indien egter onbehoorlik toegepas, betoog die outeur, kan dit ook gebruik word om die beginsel van subsidieriteit te ondermyn. Die outeur ondersoek sekere sake wat beklemtoon het dat nasionale wetgewing nie ontduik kan word nie en dat vertroue regstreeks in die grondwet geplaas word om regte af te dwing. Dit word herhaal deur die bepalings van die Wet op die Bevordering van Administratiewe Geregtigheid "ten uitvoer te bring". Ten slotte ondersoek die artikel die moontlikheid van ruim balans, indien enige, wat tussen die elastisiteit wat deur die legaliteitsbeginsel gebied word en die vereiste om nie nasionale wetgewing te ignoreer nie, bereik kan word.

TL;DR: In this paper, the Court's opinion in Atkins focused on human dignity concerns arising from an evolved moral standard, a national consensus that it is morally wrong to impose the death penalty on mentally retarded.
Abstract: In Lawrence v. Texas, human dignity played a prominent role in the Supreme Court's constitutional decision-making. In some instances, the Court has decided cases based on the notion that human dignity underlies express and unenumerated constitutional guarantees; only by advancing human dignity do these Courts' decisions fulfill a particular constitutional right or guarantee. According to Whitman, the American notion of privacy is more akin to a liberty interest while the European notion is closer to a concern for dignity. As demonstrated herein, human dignity, so conceived, underlies our constitutional rights to privacy, liberty, protection against unreasonable search and seizure, protection against cruel and unusual punishment, and other express rights and guarantees. Nowhere did the majority mention a human dignity concern arising from the sixteen hour delay preceding the supervising officer seeking a magistrate's order for a search. The Court's opinion in Atkins focused on human dignity concerns arising from an evolved moral standard, a national consensus that it is morally wrong to impose the death penalty on mentally retarded. On the opposing side of freedom of expression, in libel/ reputational injury decisions, the dignity described by the Court differs somewhat from the human dignity described in the privacy/ liberty interest, Fourth, Fifth, and Eighth Amendment jurisprudence
