LINDIWE Khumalo, a young admitted attorney and professional assistant at UKZN’s Pietermaritzburg Campus Law Clinic, has been awarded a R120 000 bursary from SBT Civils, an engineering firm based in Ballito, to carry out the valuable community work of the University Law Clinic on gender issues, domestic violence, divorce and maintenance within indigent communities around Pietermaritzburg.

This bursary is part of SBT’s corporate social investment programme, funding community interventions for social development.

Sanjay Maharaj, an alumni of the law school, approached SBT about funding for Khumalo.

He had recognised her potential, her work ethic and proven ability, and decided that she was a worthy recipient of this valuable investment in skills development.

UKZN law students, like Khumalo, work in the clinic offering paralegal services while receiving their practical legal training.

Here students develop essential legal skills and professional behaviours that prepare them effectively for participating in the process of building a sustainable, authentic and fair legal system.
