Rhodes University Law Clinic

The Rhodes University Law Clinic (the Clinic) is a non-profit-making organisation that was established in 1979 and forms part of the Faculty of Law. The Clinic depends on outside funding for its existence. 

The Clinic has developed in recent years to focus on the following primary objectives:

  • the provision of free legal services to the indigent people of Grahamstown and the surrounding area who cannot afford to pay a private practitioner, thereby increasing access to justice to the poorest of the poor and creating a greater respect for the rule of law;
  • the education of Rhodes law students in the practical application of the law in order to enable them to serve clients in an effective, efficient, productive, ethical, business-minded and socially conscious manner;
  • providing support, training and back-up legal services to paralegal advice offices throughout the Eastern Cape Province.
