We are thrilled to share the exciting news that one of our valued Allan Gray Orbis Fellows, Tshidiso Ramogale, has recently played a significant role in a landmark case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). As Junior Counsel representing South Africa, Tshidiso contributed to the legal arguments brought against Israel regarding alleged acts of genocide against the Palestinian people. This complex and high-profile case has garnered international attention, and Tshidiso’s involvement marks a remarkable achievement for both him and the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation. It showcases the depth of legal expertise and unwavering commitment to social justice that we strive to cultivate in our Fellows.
Tshidiso’s journey is particularly inspiring. Having overcome personal challenges in his youth, he went on to graduate from Wits University and Harvard Law School. He founded the non-profit Change SA, empowering young South Africans through social entrepreneurship. Now, as a prominent advocate, he tackles critical issues at the forefront of international law. This remarkable contribution to the ICJ case exemplifies the transformative impact our Fellows can have on the world stage. Tshidiso’s dedication to human rights and pursuit of justice through legal advocacy align perfectly with the values of the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation.
