The Phatshoane Henney Group of Associated Law Firms has just awarded 10 bursaries with a total value of R250,000 to black candidate attorneys serving articles at Group member firms nationwide.
“These bursaries form part of the Phatshoane Henney Group support initiatives to grow the number of black professionals in the group. By assisting Group firms to enhance their offer to candidates, it not only addresses the challenge of attracting quality black candidate attorneys to Group firms located away from main centra, but also of supporting member firms who have set themselves specific targets for the appointment and development of black professionals at their firms,” remarks Group Chair, Douglas Henney.
The bursaries were paid to candidate attorneys via the Phatshoane Henney Foundation, the Group’s registered non-profit charitable trust.
The following candidates received such bursaries at the beginning of 2018:
