Legal Aid South Africa Collaboration PDF Print E-mail

During 2007 and 2010, the Centre for Child Law entered into an agreement with the Legal Aid South Africa (previously "Legal Aid Board") in terms of which the Centre provided assistance to Legal Aid SA practitioners on matters relating to children. The Centre sent out a weekly newsletter on child law matters, as listed below. While these newsletters have not been updated since 2010, they may provide a useful starting point for practitioners.

CENTRE FOR CHILD LAW RESPONDS TO GAUTENG SCHOOL PLACEMENT WOES

The beginning of the 2019 academic year saw some parents scramble to find places for their children in Gauteng schools. On 7 January 2019, it was reported that just over 17 000 learners still needed to be placed in grades 1 and 8 classes. The Centre for Child Law (the Centre) is concerned by the persistence of school placement shortages in the province.
