Lawyers Collective - About
The Lawyers Collective is a group of Lawyers with a mission to empower and change the status of marginalised groups through the effective use of law, and an engagement in human rights advocacy, legal aid and litigation. The Lawyers Collective, actively uses the law as a tool to address critical issues such as domestic violence, sexual harassment at the workplace, matrimonial and family related matters, crimes against women particularly sexual assault and reproductive rights, rights of the LGBTQ community, access to medicine and health care. Our mission is the empowerment of marginalised groups through law. This is based on the belief that law is an instrument of social change and can be used in different ways to further the constitutional and human rights of women. Since its inception in 1981, the LC has been actively engaged with the entire legal regime of addressing the rights of marginalised groups.
