Register for this year's Public Interest Law Gathering

- Lee-Anne bruce

Registration is open for the virtual Public Interest Law Gathering taking place on 13 and 14 October 2021

Register here for Day 1 and Day 2 of this year's Public Interest Law Gathering (PILG). The theme for PILG 2021 is "Reflections on defending and advancing social justice during the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa". Participation is free and, budget permitting, data will be supplied for those who require it to participate.

Started in 2011, the Public Interest Law Gathering (PILG) is an annual convening of people and organisations who use law as a tool to advance social justice in South Africa. It provides a platform for public interest law practitioners, community activists, law students, academics and donors to a) reflect on their strategies; b) learn from each other; c) strengthen networks and solidarity; d) renew energy levels; and e) showcase the richness of public interest legal work to law students who may be considering a career in this field.
