This document sets out to formalise the Young Scholars Society (YSS) of SASLAW. It has been agreed by the current committee that this name is to be used.  This is a more inclusive name to include members from the Bar associations, HR practitioners, public sector representatives and academics who are interested in the study and practice of labour law as a discipline.  There is an alignment with the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law (ISLSSL) who refer to the Young Scholars Society.
