Thought Leader Encounters


This activity entails a series of talks on critical issues in law and society and legal education that will be hosted by the Centre. These talks aim to bring students and faculty in contact with thought leaders in the field (including especially those outside of the field of law), to encourage dialogue on difficult topics, and to open conversations between socio-legal scholars and researchers, activists and thinkers who practice at the boundary between law and society.

CLS will be hosting the first Thought Leader Encounter of the year on Thursday the 11th of May from 12:45 - 14:00.

Researcher and Analyst Nomboniso Gasa will engage with the feminist principle of 'the personal is political' – discussing the principle’s relevance in the context of shifting social and political dynamics in South Africa, the continent and the world more generally, and how it allows us to connect the abstract/theoretical to the material. 

Details are below. Please RSVP at for catering purposes by Wednesday the 10th of May.
