Cecile obtained her BA (Law) and LLB degrees from the University of Stellenbosch in 2014. She commenced articles in the Grahamstown office of the Legal Resources Centre in 2016.

The LRC is a human rights orga­ni­za­tion in South Africa. We use the law as an instru­ment of jus­tice for the vul­ner­a­ble and mar­gin­alised, includ­ing poor, home­less, and land­less peo­ple and com­mu­ni­ties who suf­fer dis­crim­i­na­tion by rea­son of race, class, gen­der, dis­abil­ity or by rea­son of social, eco­nomic, and his­tor­i­cal cir­cum­stances.

The LRC has offices in Johan­nes­burg, Dur­ban, Gra­ham­stown and Cape Town. Our work takes us from the heart of urban cities to the most remote rural areas in South Africa. We also par­tic­i­pate in net­works that involve the South­ern African region and the African con­ti­nent.
