Pro-bono - Eversheds South Africa

Pro bono, South Africa

At Eversheds Sutherland, we are aware of the socio-economic context in which we operate and we want to make a tangible difference. It is with genuine commitment and enthusiasm therefore that we provide access to justice to people who cannot afford to pay.

Our corporate responsibility and pro bono commitment supports our purpose and values, and is centered on unlocking talent and access to justice. Unlocking Talent is about developing the talents and potential of everyone in society to the fullest, especially when there is not equal opportunity. As a leading global law firm, we utilize our people's varied talents to engage in meaningful volunteer work.

Marginalized individuals who do not have access to a lawyer encounter incredible barriers to social mobility and the most basic human rights. We seek to use our legal skills for the greater good through our pro bono department that engages both lawyers and legal professionals around the world. We are committed to representing vulnerable clients and taking on projects that aim to improve society using skillful and accessible legal advice

Amongst the variety of clients that we have assisted in the past, we continue to support Women and Men Against Child Abuse (WMACA) and the Baby Ethan Foundation with their legal needs.
