Law Students Benefit from Vacation Work Programme
UKZN’s Black Lawyer’s Association Student Chapter (BLASC), in partnership with J Leslie Smith and Company Inc Attorneys, organised a vacation work programme for 10 University Law students.
During the programme, the students visited the Offices of the Master of the High Court, which proved to be interesting with the group learning about the Guardians Fund and the Administration of the Trust Property Control Act, Act 57 of 1998. They also learnt how a deceased person’s estate is wound up and how title deeds are obtained or transferred.
The students also interacted with a variety of office holders at the court.
While at the offices of the attorneys they also learned about a variety of different aspects of the law, including specialised fields such as Labour, Commercial and Tax law.
The students all enjoyed the experience saying it had given them practical insight into a career in law, which had now motivated them to work hard and excel in their studies.
The UKZN-PMB BLASC Chairperson, Miss Nomasabatha Mkhize thanked those who participated and issued out reference letters. She also thanked J Leslie and Company Inc Attorneys for giving the students such an amazing opportunity. The Executive Committee of BLASC also called for more, similar programmes for Law students.
