Candidate Attorney's Learnership
The "Candidate Attorney's" learnership allows for attendance at a School for Legal Practice (ten centres) and service as a candidate attorney. The distance school (with only 30 days attendance) and the 'night' school present the candidate attorney who cannot be out of the office for six months, with an exciting option.
Funding has been made available to L.E.A.D (the Legal Education and Development division of the Law Society of South Africa) to provide the following assistance to candidate attorneys and law firms in 2010:
- Sponsoring of the tuition fee of the School (R8 700.00)
- An allowance of R3 300.00 per month to the candidate attorney while attending the
School and while serving articles of clerkship.
The firm may claim a tax rebate to a maximum amount of R25 000.00. Read the Learnership brochure
Bursary for candidate attorneys
The Law Society of South Africa (L.E.A.D) and SASSETA invite candidate attorneys to apply for a bursary towards the completion of a six month (day or night) or one year distance practical legal training programme of the school of legal practice.
As only 30 bursaries are available in total, applications will be assessed on a first come first serve basis. Read the Bursary brochure
