Who We Are

The Law Clinic, situated at 18-24 Crozier Street in Stellenbosch, subscribes to the following vision, mission and values:


  1. A community that is legally empowered and that possesses a strengthened capacity to exercise their rights, either as individuals or as members of the community;
  2. Law graduates who are professionally trained and are at the highest echelons insofar as their employability is concerned; and
  3. A broader South African community that is sensitised to their social justice responsibilities.


To bring our vision into reality the Law Clinic, through collaboration initiatives or otherwise, provides professional legal advice and representation in civil matters to members of the community who qualify for legal aid in Stellenbosch and surrounding areas and we offer legal education, including clinical legal education, to candidate attorneys, final-year law students and to members of the community, including the poor and marginalised.


The Law Clinic expects every employee to maintain the organization's core values ​​in dealing with clients, colleagues and other stakeholders:

  1. Commitment and passion
  2. Transparency
  3. Honesty and integrity
  4. Respect

It is comforting and reassuring to know that in this area we have a Law clinic which appreciates the absolute importance of obtaining a qualified and experienced legal representation for parties who are saddled with legal issues.

I can attest to the fact that your clinic highly recognizes the importance of legal representation as a means of enforcing rights and interests.

I wish to express my thanks and sincere appreciation…for your willingness to be a champion of justice. Without your forthcoming response and your consideration to the matters which we had, we would be still sitting with protracted litigation and litigants saddled with high fees.

Thank you for such wonderful and immeasurable support. I do acknowledge your contribution to the justice system and it means a lot. I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for the court.
