About the Webber Wentzel Empowerment Trust
The Webber Wentzel Empowerment Trust is an independent entity, established as one of Webber Wentzel's empowerment efforts with the mandate and objective to create sustainable opportunities for aspiring Black legal professionals.
As a proudly South African company, Webber Wentzel has, since the advent of democracy, been taking steps to transform the Firm and contribute to the transformation of the legal profession.
Established in 2016, we are encouraged by the progress we are making in supporting both students and law faculties at universities. To do more and reach wider, the Trust will continue to:
- Explore opportunities to partner up with the like-minded in order to increase capacity.
- Strive to increase the number of students and university faculties we support.
- Forge long term relationships with a wide range of stakeholders such as schools, universities and potential employers.
