South Africa has robust laws which protect the vulnerable but enforcement of these laws lags behind. There is a scarcity of lawyers working at community levels which hinders much needed legal reform. Grassroots justice is therefore required to fill the gap. In response to this problem, the Cape Town office of Norton Rose Fulbright SA, in association with ProBono.Org, launched a general legal clinic in the community of Langa on 7 February 2018. The clinic’s objective is to provide access to justice and to empower people to protect their rights. The firm will be providing pro bono legal services to Langa residents once a month for the next year. If you would like to offer your services at the clinic, please contact Nicki van‘t Riet.
