Phatshoane Henney Group awards R250,000 in bursaries to 12 candidate attorneys

This year the Phatshoane Henney Group of Associated Law Firms has awarded 12 bursaries with a total value of R250,000 to black candidate attorneys serving articles at Group member firms nationwide.

“These bursaries form part of the Phatshoane Henney Group support initiatives to grow the number of black professionals in the group. By assisting Group firms to enhance their offer to candidates, it not only addresses the challenge of attracting quality black candidate attorneys to Group firms located away from main centra, but also of supporting member firms who have set themselves specific targets for the appointment and development of black professionals at their firms,” remarks Group Chair, Douglas Henney.

The bursaries were paid to candidate attorneys via the Phatshoane Henney Foundation, the Group’s registered non-profit charitable trust.

The following candidates received bursaries from the Phatshoane Henney Foundation at the beginning of 2019:

Human Rights: Upholding the right to education

The right to education is outlined in section 29 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 (hereinafter “the Constitution”). This section guarantees that everyone has the right to basic education and the right to further education, which the state, through reasonable measures, must make progressively available and accessible. In South Africa the right to basic education can be described as a fundamental socio-economic right, that is, an entitlement to conditions and resources necessary for the material well-being of people.
