SASLAW Winter Newsletter – August 2016
Introduction – National President
I am pleased to report that the Society is in excellent health, with 27 Chapter events and a very successful and well attended National Conference held over the first 6 months of the year. The chapter committees are to be commended, so too the tireless work of Peter le Roux and Clare Fincham in organising the Conference.
The probono project also continues to expand and provide an essential avenue for access to justice and, with the assistance of Legal Aid SA, a full time attorney is now to be appointed at the Labour Court, Braamfontein. Congratulations and thanks are also expressed to Ebrahiem Abrahams from Bowman Gilfillan in Cape Town on his appointment as a director of SASLAW Probono NPC.
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 1300 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 13 000 clients who have been assisted since the inception of the project in February 2011 to date.
