Between 24 and 26 July 2017, SERI will be participating in the seventh annual Public Interest Law Gathering (PILG) which will be held at the School of Public Health at the University of the Western Cape. The event brings together public interest legal practitioners and organisations, law students, community-based paralegals, social movement leaders and legal academics from across South Africa.

Several SERI staff members are involved in presenting, facilitating or organising panels at the gathering around a wide variety of topics including panels on regulating and enabling disruptive protest, urban land justice, how the public interest legal services sector should deal with increased demand for legal services, racial and gender transformation in the public interest legal services sector and which sphere of government to hold accountable for access to basic services. 

SERI staff involved in the event include Alana Potter, Dasantha Pillay, Tiffany Ebrahim, Nomzamo Zondo and Thulani Nkosi.
