Social Justice  Hub

The Law Trust Chair in Social Justice was established in 2016 within the Faculty of Law at the University of Stellenbosch. It serves as a platform that promotes Social Justice Scholarship, consciousness and collaboration to ensure Social Justice reform in the academic field of study. It is headed by Professor Thuli Madonsela, the former Public Protector of South Africa, and is anchored in the triple objectives of responsive research, teaching and social impact.

LexisNexis believes that sustainable social, political and economic progress can only thrive where the rule of law exists. Equally, we support the notion that social justice – the manifestation of human rights in the everyday lives of people at every level of society – is only possible through the equal enjoyment of all rights and freedoms, regardless of human diversity, and the fair and just distribution of all opportunities, benefits, privileges and burdens in a society or group.

The Social Justice M-Plan is the flagship programme of the Law Trust Chair in Social Justice. It is an integrated ground up civil society plan that seeks to coordinate systematic and integrated academic, business and broader civil society input to support government efforts towards breaking the back of poverty and inequality.
