Canadian students Will Stevens and Tiana Gleason from the University of Western Ontario, who are in South Africa at the invitation of the S A Society for Labour Law (SASLAW) between May and July 2022, visited ProBono. Org on 11 May accompanied by a representative of Fasken, their hosts in Johannesburg.

After an introduction at our office, we took our visitors to meet with Martha Chauke, the paralegal at the Dobsonville Community Advice Office who we have been working with for a number of years. Martha talked about the work of the advice office, which serves a wide area providing the community with legal assistance.

We wish Will and Tiana well for their visits to Durban and Cape Town, where they will be hosted by Norton Rose Fulbright and Webber Wentzel. We also hope they have been inspired to include pro bono work in their legal careers once they graduate.
