About Legal Aid South Africa
Legal Aid South Africa was established in 1969 as an independent statutory body to provide South African citizens who may not have the resources to afford the cost of a legal representative, with legal services. The organisation's mandate is to ensure that all South African's have access to justice, with no regard to their social or financial status. As the largest law firm in Africa in terms of the number of lawyers employed, Legal Aid South Africa has distinguished itself by rolling out legal services to the poor and vulnerable, and has become a model for the implementation of legal aid services in the rest of Africa and abroad.
