Ndulo Appointed “Professor Extraordinary” at South Africa’s University of the Free State

Cornell Law’s Muna Ndulo, Professor of Law and Director of the Institute for African Development, has been appointed “Professor Extraordinary” in the Department of Mercantile Law at the University of the Free State. Based in Bloemfontein, the judicial capital of South Africa, the University is one of the country’s oldest institutions of higher learning.

Ndulo is an internationally recognized scholar who has served as a legal expert on several UN missions and a consultant in the constitutional processes of Kenya, Zimbabwe, Somalia, and Sudan. During his five-year appointment at the University of the Free State, Ndulo will give periodic lectures and collaborate with the school’s students and faculty.

“I am humbled by this appointment and grateful to the University of the Free State for giving me this wonderful opportunity to work with the community of their great university,” he says, adding “all professors are extraordinary, as they selflessly impart knowledge and in turn learn from their students.”
