The Claude Leon Foundation


The Students for Law and Social Justice (SLSJ) was formed in 2007. Its aim is to expose law students nationally to the potential of the law as a mechanism for advancing a society founded upon the principles of the rule of law and social justice. This is evident in its campus work through the development of a variety of programmes including; student advice programmes where law students set and support para-legal advice offices in townships; a legal education programme for informal traders, and 'jogs for justice'.
One of the main activities of SLSJ is the national seminars organized annually. The seminars play a valuable role in exposing students to critical discussion and debate on issues of social justice. The central theme of the seminar in 2013 was "The Implementation Gap: the disjuncture between the Constitution and reality”. The Claude Leon Foundation has funded the costs of hosting the seminars annually since 2008.
