Dear Future Attorney

Thank you for your interest in serving articles at Legal Aid South Africa.


Please note the following:

    1. You will only be allowed to register one application against your identity number. Multiple applications are not accepted.
    2. Legal Aid SA only accepts applications from final year LLB students or BProc/LLB graduates.
    3. Legal Aid SA provides opportunities for 300 Candidate Attorneys per annum.
    4. 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.
