Juta and Company (Pty) Ltd is the oldest publishing house in South Africa and, remarkably, remains true to its founder’s intent to service education and legal information requirements. Consequently, for more than 160 years Juta has been associated with quality Law, Compliance, Education, Academic and Professional publishing in southern Africa. Drawing on our heritage of authority and excellence, Juta has remained relevant by embracing technological innovation and diversifying beyond publishing to offer e-learning and technology-driven information solutions.
Kagiso Media Limited (KML) acquired 100% of Juta shareholding in May 2012. This transaction places this iconic South African heritage brand within the ambit of a black-owned media company with an appetite for investing in growth initiatives, which bodes well for Juta’s continued growth into the future.
A division in Juta has published an unrivalled range of iconic authored commentary works, law reports, legislation and journals, which are indispensable to the practice of law and the effective functioning of government and business. Our pre-eminent list of Juta authors and contributors are drawn from the senior ranks of the judiciary, academia, private practice and the corporate sector. Supporting the efforts of our authors, the committed team of Law publishers and editorial staff provide the requisite publishing skills and expertise that culminate in works bearing the distinctive Juta hallmarks of authority, accuracy and trustworthiness.
