Our commitment to bringing transparency to the judicial appointments process in South Africa comes with considerable costs.

It costs R6 000 per candidate to bring you the live stream of the JSC interviews.

Every year in April and October we live stream the Judicial Service Commission interviews of prospective judicial candidates for the Superior Courts. In order to ensure that our work in monitoring this process continues, we need your help.

With your donation we can ensure that the Judges Matter live stream of the JSC interviews continues. It costs approximately R6 000 per candidate to live stream each round of JSC interviews.

We call on you to help us by sponsoring the live streaming of judicial candidates.
