Lady Felicia Kentridge

co-founder of the Legal Resources Centre

The Trust deeply regrets the death in June of Lady Felicia Kentridge. Her vision, humanity and wisdom live on in the work of the Legal Resources Centre (LRC) in South Africa which she founded and the former Legal Assistance Trust (LAT) which she co-founded in the UK. The LAT merger with the Canon Collins Trust in 2012 and the partnership between CCELAT and the LRC will ensure that Lady Kentridge's legacy is to strengthen human rights, equitable development and the rule of law in South Africa.
