OCTOBER 2015 NEWSLETTER – ISSUE 42

We dedicate this issue to the Pro Bono Awards Ceremony held at The Hill, Constitution Hill on 17 September 2015

This year’s ceremony was held on home ground, at The Hill Café at Constitution Hill. Over 180 attorneys, advocates and friends attended the event. Our Master of Ceremonies was David Lewis, Executive Director of Corruption Watch, and we were honoured to have the Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela as our keynote speaker.

The awards are held to recognise the valuable contribution made
by pro bono attorneys, law firms and advocates to the lives of low- income people in South Africa. While last year’s awards were based on hours worked, the categories this year focused more on the quality and impact of pro bono work. New categories of Human Rights Champion, Children’s Rights Defender and Students at university law clinics were added.
