Introduction – National President
Dear Members and Supporters,
It is an absolute honour to serve as the President of SASLAW and to continue the tradition of an organisation that is so highly regarded. I am both eager and enthusiastic to play both a significant and an enduring role in the life of this organisation. On behalf of SASLAW please consider this an open invitation to let us have any and all of your suggestions, ideas or contributions towards making this year a resounding success for all of us.
THE SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIETY FOR LABOUR LAW
The SA Society for Labour Law is a members association for those involved in all aspects of Labour Law in South Africa
The South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW) is a non-profit organisation. The aim of the Society is to promote the advancement of labour law as a legal and academic discipline, and encourage collaboration between lawyers and other experts within the field of labour law.
SASLAW has over 1200 members in South Africa. Membership is made up of judges, advocates, attorneys, candidate attorneys, HR and IR management, government officials, CCMA commissioners, and employers’ organisations. SASLAW has chapters in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and the Free State.
Seminars and workshops are arranged throughout the year on topical issues, which suit the wide range of members.
Following the pilot SASLAW Pro Bono project at the Labour Court in Johannesburg, the Pro Bono programme has now been established as an indispensable cornerstone of the administration of justice at the four Labour Courts around the country. This fact is clearly demonstrated by the over 14 000 clients who have been assisted since the inception of the project in February 2011 to date.
