NetLaw: Creating a backbone of free resources for Law Faculties

The cost of doing business within South Africa, along with the cost of running an educational institution is growing, and extremely quickly too. One essential piece of this cost-puzzle can be found in access to information. The ability of an organization to provide professionally moderated information to its employees or students, ensures that learning and growth can continue. Sabinet has actively pursued business and academic growth in South Africa through its facilitation of access to information.

Beyond creating a backbone of resources for Law firms and businesses, Sabinet has focused on enabling tertiary education institutions to access the resources necessary to train young students in various industries and professions. It is important for Sabinet to know that the institutions who will be preparing our country’s law students for their adult lives, provide them with the very best, accurate and reliable resources possible.
