NADEL at university law professions’ day

April 1st, 2013

The Pietermaritzburg branch of the National Association of Democratic Lawyers (NADEL) was represented at a recent law professions’ day at the Pietermaritzburg campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Chairperson of the branch, Harshna Munglee, said of the event: ‘Being a progressive lawyers’ association, it is our intention to start with the future lawyers of the country, who are able to start early in the organisation, where they will be introduced to the struggles of the past, giving back to the profession and to the true values of what it means to be a progressive lawyer of today. Social gatherings will be held at appropriate times in the year to have regular dialogue between students and attorneys. We hope to form a youth membership in our branch, promoting and encouraging our young lawyers so that we ensure a progression plan is in place in our organisation, thus ensuring the ideals and the legacy of our organisation will continue to thrive in an ever-changing democratic legal society of our country.’
