Life@Venns – Bonginkosi Makanya

Without a solid foundation, you’ll have trouble creating anything of value”, Anike Oppenheimer

We often dream of one day becoming one of the best attorneys in the profession and even one of the best judges in the country. In order to be the best, you have to learn from the best and have a solid foundation. A solid foundation for us is not only a good understanding of the law, but also the ability to represent your client’s best interests at all times.

Being one of the largest law firms in KwaZulu-Natal, Venns Attorneys is a perfect place for candidate attorneys (CAs) to learn and grow, and by doing so, builds a solid foundation which will help them compete and succeed in this profession.

My life @Venns has been exactly that –learning and building a solid foundation. The Venns’ CA programme is designed in such a way that when the 2 year articles of clerkship period comes to an end one is not only a competent attorney, but also has a solid foundation to enable one to compete and grow in this profession.
