Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng and the judge that President Jacob Zuma has nominated to be his right hand share the same sentiments that black lawyers‚ particularly black women lawyers‚ are not being given enough opportunities to progress in the legal sector. This emerged on Monday while deputy chief justice hopeful Judge Raymond Zondo‚ was being interviewed by the Judicial Service Commission for the deputy chief justice post. He told the commissioners interviewing him that during his time as judge president of the labour court and labour appeal court‚ he had initiated a programme to develop black labour lawyers and judges. "The reality was that a lot of black lawyers did not have much knowledge on labour law‚" said Zondo.
