Steven Spronz to Teach South Africa Commercial Law Practicum
August 15, 2011
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--Steven C. Spronz is slated to teach the International Senior Lawyers Program (ISLP) Commercial Law Program, teaching lawyers in South Africa who have historically been denied the opportunity to participate or grow in this practice area.
In this program ISLP volunteers, all experienced commercial law attorneys from several countries, are paired with African business lawyers. The South Africa program, created in partnership with the Black Lawyers Association of South Africa and the Senior Lawyers Division of the American Bar Association, has been presented each year since 2004 and to date has enrolled over 500 South African attorneys in Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town.
Mr. Spronz has served as a volunteer since the pilot program launch.
About the International Senior Lawyers Project
ISLP, a 501(c)(3) organization, was incorporated in March 2000 to create a vehicle through which senior lawyers could use their skills and expertise to promote the rule of law and human rights. Since 2001, ISLP has deployed world-class legal counsel globally on economic development, human rights, and access to justice projects. ISLP partners with developing country governments who desperately need legal services but are without resources to pay for them, as well as with non-governmental organizations and other civil society groups throughout the developing world.
