The Legal Resources Centre is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Advocate Rudolph Jansen (SC), who passed away on Saturday while on a trip to consult with clients in Limpopo. We knew Rudolph as a committed human rights activist and social justice practitioner who worked on many important human rights cases.

Advocate Jansen was admitted to the Pretoria Bar in 1990. He served as the Director of Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) from 2002-2007 – foregoing his full-time private practice at the Bar during that period. After leaving LHR, he continued to work with many communities – often on a probono or a contingency basis. He was conferred silk in 2014. His commitment to land rights, justice and community development were evident in so many ways. He had a passion for uplifting communities through rights-based advocacy and litigation that was unwavering.

We have lost a true patriot and social justice fighter. We convey our deepest condolences to his wife, Mariana, and two sons, Rudolph and Gustav, and to his broader family, friends and colleagues.
