11 Aug Welcome to SED, Sustainable Built Environment Debate
There are few if any platforms where there is an ongoing engagement relating to legal lifestyle, networking and mentorship.This is basically a creative library to transfer ideas, experiences and dialogue.
My experience mostly lies in all aspects relating to sustainability and sustainable environment. I have extensive practical experience in the field of environmental consulting, environmental and occupational health audits and campaigns. As a practicing advocate at the Johannesburg Bar, I work with attorneys and clients on matters from mining, construction, environmental and administrative, town planning and procurement. I have done my Masters in environmental law – which included water, biodiversity, mining, occupational health and town planning law. It is a vast subject. I am currently doing my Doctorate specialising in environmental and construction law. Besides academic studies – nothing compares to experience. Usually the practical reality is far removed from the legislated intention.
I am also involved in SABWiL (South African Black Women in Law) which offers training, mentorship and a moot court experience. I genuinely believe that the key to unlocking most of the socio-economic problems experienced, particularly in the legal fraternity is a lack of hands on mentorship. This should be happening from High School and Varsity upwards.
