Lwando Xaso-Constitutional Lawyer and Writer
Lwando Xaso is a constitutional lawyer and a writer. She has clerked at the Constitutional Court and is a trustee of the Constitutional Court Trust. She is also the convener of the Including Society discussions.
Lwando recently left private practice to join the project team that is building a museum to the South African constitution and the history of constitutionalism in this country. The museum will sit opposite the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg.
We chatted about the state of the nation, about her early and ongoing confrontations with racism and gender bias and how we should use identity politics as a positive thing.
We did also discuss the efforts to transform the legal profession in south Africa.
