Sally joined the Centre in early 2017 as an attorney in the Mining Programme. Prior to joining the Centre she served her articles of community service with the Legal Resources Centre’s Cape Town office where she was involved in a range of public interest law focus areas, including land and mining. Sally has a BA degree and B.Soc.Sci honours, as well as an LLB from the University of Cape Town and an LLM (cum laude) in Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa from the Centre for Human Rights at the University of Pretoria. During her LLM, Sally also interned at the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights’ East Africa Regional Office in Addis Ababa, where she developed mild addictions to two of Ethiopia’s national pastimes – macchiatos and running, both of which she has mostly kept up with since returning to South Africa.
