Answers for all your South Africa law inquiries


After ending apartheid in 1994, South Africa adopted a constitution in 1996 based on the UK model. The new constitution was intended to address the inequality caused by the oppression of the black majority in the country, and to ensure equality and dignity to all South Africans. The constitution entitles all citizens to the rights of housing, health care, food and water, social security, a clean environment and access to education. Despite the intention behind its bill of rights, South African has yet to properly address widespread poverty and inequality, leaving many in need of legal assistance.


In addition, the South African government has been struggling to find ways to utilize the natural resources of the country to improve the living conditions of all South Africans. For outsiders trying to do business in South Africa, navigating the legal system can be a challenge.


If you're having a problem involving the South African legal system, a South African law Expert on JustAnswer may be able to answer your questions and help you to determine the best options in your situation. This can be an affordable alternative to paying a lawyer for a full one-hour meeting to discuss your issue.
