SASLAW Pro Bono NPC
About the Project

SASLAW Pro Bono NPC

The SASLAW Pro Bono NPC project at the South African Labour Courts serves to deliver a quality advisory service and defined Labour Law legal services to those who otherwise do not have access to justice.

SASLAW Pro Bono NPC is a non-profit company formed by SASLAW – the SA Society for Labour Law – to administer the Pro Bono project in the four Labour Courts in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

SASLAW was started in 1997 and is an association for those individuals who are involved in Labour Law in South Africa. The association has 1500 members, 6 chapters, 6 members of staff and is run by national and chapter committees. The members serve SASLAW and the Pro Bono NPC on a voluntary basis.

SASLAW Pro Bono NPC is committed to the project and its general membership is committed to:

  • Assisting unrepresented and indigent litigants in gaining access to justice
  • Using their knowledge in the field of Labour Law to perform pro bono work
  • Assisting the Labour Court in addressing the backlog in its case-load and facilitating the efficient operation of the various Labour Courts

The project assists the Labour Court with giving South Africans who cannot afford legal assistance, the right to have access to justice, and to receive advice on their labour matters from professional and qualified attorneys in a dignified and respectful manner.

Pro Bono services are the delivery of legal advice and/or assistance within the professional competence of a legal practitioner to facilitate access to justice. Pro bono services are designed to address the needs of persons with limited needs, or of non-profit organizations where the payment of legal fees will deplete the organization’s economic resources and affect their ability to carry out charitable or public interest work.
