Law & Human Rights in South Africa
Whether you are considering a career in law or human rights or a graduate seeking some practical experience, a placement at the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office in Cape Town will be a great opportunity to boost your CV whilst carrying out worthwhile work in the local community. Volunteers on our Projects Abroad Law & Human Rights placement will work alongside local staff and gain first-hand experience of human rights law in practice.
Your role as a volunteer will be determined by your level of experience and any specific areas of interest that you have. We welcome volunteers of all levels of experience to participate - whether you are a university hopeful or a qualified lawyer we will be happy to welcome you. An average day may involve conducting interviews, doing research, providing legal advice and reviewing cases from walk-in clients. Office work is combined with field work in prisons, homes for victims of abuse, HIV / AIDS victim shelters and juvenile detention centres.
Volunteers can get involved in the running of human rights workshops, the distribution of educational pamphlets or documents, assisting refugees in processing their refugee status papers, and skill-building, CV development and mock interview workshops.
