I am an academic at the Law School of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, where I chair the Health Law & Ethics Research Interest Group. I also have a private law practice, where I specialise in strategic litigation in fertility law. Before starting my academic career, I practiced as an advocate at the Pretoria Bar, focusing on human rights litigation.
I served as legal counsel in several landmark cases in the field of fertility law in South Africa. Some highlights are: The first case that considered the concept ‘designer children’ (2016); the first case of posthumous conception (2018); the first case of gamete withdrawal from a comatose person (2020); and the first case about the enforceability of a sperm donor agreement (2021).
My blog highlights some of the milestones in my work. Happy reading!
