Pro Bono Attorneys needed for Master of the High Court Help Desk

Article by Neo Chokoe

 

The Pretoria office of ProBono.Org holds a weekly legal clinic at the office of the Master of the High Court, Pretoria. The aim of this project is to give pro bono attorneys a platform to assist poor clients with issues pertaining to the administration of deceased estates.

The help desk is staffed by volunteer attorneys on a weekly basis every Friday. They consult with clients and refer to our office any matters that need further legal intervention. The number of clients has increased greatly from the inception of the project and we need more attorneys to staff the desk and render free assistance to the clients who desperately need help.

We would like to make an appeal to attorneys who specialise in this area of law to sign up and fill the slots so the desk can continue to operate efficiently.
