Thank you for your interest in serving articles at Legal Aid South Africa.
Please note the following:
- You will only be allowed to register one application against your identity number. Multiple applications are not accepted.
- Legal Aid SA only accepts applications from final year LLB students or BProc/LLB graduates.
- Legal Aid SA provides opportunities for 300 Candidate Attorneys per annum.
- The organisation works on a push system for Candidate Attorney recruitment, meaning that at all material times, the positions are filled. Applicants are assessed and pre-screened for appointability and are matched to opportunities as they arise.
The demand to serve articles with Legal Aid SA exceeds the number of opportunities available in a given year multifold times. Therefore, do not expect automatic or immediate placement. Do also submit applications to serve articles elsewhere.
