Project Description

Danielle Louw

The rights of refugees in South Africa to access courts

Danielle has a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in Psychology and English, and an LLB degree from Stellenbosch University.

Danielle identifies as a mixed-race womxn and as pansexual. Growing up mixed-race in George, a conservative town, she faced many challenges. Danielle persevered and made it her objective to maintain good marks so that she could qualify for bursaries to pursue her tertiary studies. She has received five bursaries throughout her studies and was awarded a scholarship to participate in a semester exchange to the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

Danielle is currently employed as a Candidate Attorney at the Stellenbosch University Law Clinic, subscribes to the values of non-racialism and equality, and is an intersectional feminist. These values are what informed her decision to study law. She considers it her life’s mission to do her part to help achieve greater socio-economic equality for all.
