Former Constitutional Judge Justice Yacoob was at Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group’s Pro Bono event this week to talk about the notion of lawyers acting against government institutions. Justice Yacoob said at the event that law should be used as a weapon in order to achieve greater good in society.

He explained that pro bono lawyering began in South Africa during the days of the struggle and the fight for a just society.
