About Us

The LRC is a human rights organization in South Africa. We use the law as an instrument of justice for the vulnerable and marginalised, including poor, homeless, and landless people and communities who suffer discrimination by reason of race, class, gender, disability or by reason of social, economic, and historical circumstances.

The LRC has offices in Johannesburg, Durban, Grahamstown and Cape Town. Our work takes us from the heart of urban cities to the most remote rural areas in South Africa. We also participate in networks that involve the Southern African region and the African continent.

We seek creative and effective solutions by using a range of strategies. These include impact litigation, law reform, participation in partnerships and development processes, education, and networking within South Africa, the African continent and at the international level.
