2023 South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW)’s Pro Bono project

The IHRP is excited to support a partnership with the South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW), which has become an indispensable cornerstone of the administration of justice at the four Labour Courts around the country by assisting unrepresented and indigent litigants. Since its inception in February 2011, the project has assisted more than 18,000 clients, who otherwise would not have had access to justice.

In 2023, the IHRP will select two U of T law students to assist SASLAW’s Pro Bono project in Johannesburg, South Africa. The fellowship period will run from May through August. For more information, please refer to the IHRP Guide. Students whose applications are successful will receive a $10,000 stipend to cover their expenses (as with all IHRP fellowships, financial need needs to be demonstrated). Please see a detailed description of last year’s placement here.

To apply you must complete the application form and its requirements found in Appendix A of the 2023 IHRP Guide. Applications must be submitted through UTLC by February 6, 2023.
