Advocate Samantha Jane Martin

I hold an LLM in environmental law and I am currently undertaking my Doctorate. My LLM focused on CSR solutions to sustainability, unpacking corporate legislation and shareholder activism. My doctorate explores the environmental context of public private partnerships and public procurement projects. Prior to joining the Bar, I studied Mandarin Chinese whilst working in sustainable tourism for a few years. I was then involved in community projects on environmental campaigns.

Besides practice I am also a director of SABWiL (South African Black Women in Law), a non-profit organisation which is an educational platform for students offering mentorship, moot court and skills enhancement for tomorrow’s generation of lawyers.
