Mission: To provide free legal services to vulnerable individuals and communities that have been denied their constitutional rights. Our overarching goal is to “make rights real”; we aim to ensure that the progressive promise of our national legislation is realised by representing clients (South Africans or non-nationals) who have been deprived of the law’s protection. We specialise in the following areas Refugee and Migrant Rights, Strategic Litigation, Penal Reform, Environmental Rights, Land and Housing, and Gender Equality.
LHR is a national organisation, with offices in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Musina, Upington, and Durban. Our clients come from all over the country, both rural and urban areas.
