Mobilising our Talents for Good Mentorship Programme

LegalWise was founded in 1984 with a single-minded purpose: to empower ordinary people with affordable access to justice to enforce and defend their rights. LegalWise is embarking on a journey to drive and encourage transformation and equality by offering a #BeyondMentorship programme for final year students.
