Initiatives

SS is our SABWiL Shadowing
A law student, a graduate or aspirant legal practitioner is placed for three days with a legal practitioner.  This facilitates consciousness of legal practice so that learners can make informed decisions for their future legal path and understand the value of their contributions to Lady Justice’s reign.
Advocates and attorneys volunteer many hours to the SS programme to shape our future legal landscape one student at a time.  Photographic moments capturing the SS are available on our various social media platforms.

Our SABWIL Human Rights Court SHRC
This is a moot court that sits annually in the second week of December to commemorate the signing of the Constitution of the Republic into law by Tata Madiba on 10 Dec 1996 in Sharpeville.  Our 2016 SHRC presided over by SHRC Chief Justice Adv. Lindi Nkosi-Thomas SC heard a case on defamation, social media and rape.  The 2017 SHRC presides over section 25 land compensation upon expropriation.
The hearings are available on SABWiL YouTube channel for the benefit of all aspirant legal practitioners and the public.
The SHRC is about legal practitioners forging ties with law students and aspirant counsel for the benefit of Lady Justice.  There is no better learning ground for future litigation specialists than in a simulated court. Further, we raise consciousness on human rights issues in order to ensure our Constitution is accessible and living.
