On 23 September 2016 the Durban office hosted an event at the Gateway Hotel in Umhlanga to show our appreciation to attorneys who have gone beyond expectations in meeting their pro bono obligations. While the majority of attorneys on our panel work diligently to fulfill their pro bono hours, there are some who are truly passionate about this work and this comes across in their consistent willingness to assist our clients or the Durban office itself. Apart from the attorneys, we also invited some of our partners and stakeholders with whom
Guests received certificates in various categories and while we had the serious categories, we also had some fun ones such as Most Entertaining Attorney. Our MC, Mr Jared Dukkhi (a local DJ), who offered his services pro bono, was very entertaining and had the guests chuckling throughout. Guests enjoyed the raffles and this generated much excitement, especially when the Lexis Nexis PG licenses were raffled! Our sponsors included Lexis Nexis, Discovery Health, Virgin Active Health Club, Labour Net, SAB/ ABI as well as Remy Martin. We received very positive feedback from guests and have already had queries about when the next one will be held!
