Overview of the firm’s 2018 Pro Bono contribution

The Pro Bono & Human Rights Practice (the Pro Bono Practice) is proud to report that during what was a particularly successful and productive year, collectively Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr (CDH) donated over 9,500 hours/in excess of R25 million in pro bono legal services to deserving individuals, organisations and causes during 2018. This is a truly impressive contribution of which the firm can be proud.

"The extent of this year’s contribution, I believe, shows that the impact and presence of the Pro Bono Practice is growing within the firm, and affirms the importance that CDH places not only on its pro bono obligations to assist indigent and vulnerable people to access justice, but on its moral and ethical obligations to use its considerable agency to further the promotion of constitutionalism, accountability and the rule of law. Thank you to my team here in Johannesburg and to Brigitta Mangale, our Cape Town representative, for all your commitment and hard work over the year. And a big thank you to all the other practitioners in other Practice areas who contributed valuable time and resources in assisting with pro bono instructions and in helping us roll out some of our special projects and training. In what follows below we share some of the highlights of our work over the year". - Jacquie Cassette
