ABOUT THE CENTRE

Virtual Nation Builders in collaboration with Schindlers Attorneys are proud to be the architects of the COWRIE Legal Resource Centre, endorsed by His Majesty King Makhosoke II.

The Centre aims to assist community members with legal queries, by means of our legal library in Phase 1 and in Phase 2 with “call back” services.

The legal library is always open, where one can view or download legal articles, booklets and links, to better understand rights, remedies and avenues of protection. This library is overseen by qualified attorneys and aims to self-empower community members by providing them with practical and up to date legal information.

The Centre is created with the intention of enhancing justice and access to legal information for South African communities.
