Sabeehah Motala holds an LLB degree from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, as well as a certificate in International Law from the University of Geneva Summer School. She has most recently worked as a legal intern at Lawyers for Human Rights’ Refugee Law Clinic, providing legal assistance to asylum seekers and refugees. While studying in the UK, she volunteered at the Camden Community Law Centre, was involved in the Oxford Lawyers Without Borders Human Rights Conference and has served as an editor of the prestigious SOAS Law Journal. As a result of her interest in human rights, she also hosted events on feminist legal theory and European human rights law. Sabeehah hopes that the ASRI Future Leaders Fellowship will provide a strong foundation from which to begin working towards supporting social development and the promotion of human rights in South Africa.
