Monday 17 June

JOHANNESBURG – We fully support the growing (and repeated) concerns expressed regarding the briefing patterns of Senior Legal Counsel in the social grants case argued in the Constitutional Court on 15 March 2017.

Once again, as was the case in 2015 with the silicosis case, mainly white and male senior counsel are briefed. This is unacceptable.

We fully support this morning’s call by Dumisa Ntsebeza SC that there needs to be an urgent Indaba to discuss the transformation of briefing patterns and we believe it should involve the drawing together of all stakeholders including civil society and legal services organisations, such as ourselves.
