About us

WHAT WE DO

Clearlaw is the first online platform to offer self-paced modules specifically created to explain legal concepts in practical terms.

Our team understands that the law can feel overwhelming, mysterious and even dangerous. Improve your understanding with any of our online courses.

For Lawyers

Harnessing all the benefits of blended learning, Clearlaw can ensure that you are getting the most out of your university education, and continually adding practical tips to your knowledge base if you are a graduate or young lawyer.

For Non-Lawyers

or Lawyers in Business

Many lawyers don’t work in law firms, and some people in business take on responsibility for “legal stuff”. Our courses offer practical drafting and contract law courses, ethics in business, compliance and a host of other modules giving you practical insights and tips about legal issues. Access our modules here.

A Platform for Practical Law Insights and Learning about Law

Clearlaw is a Johannesburg-based company that is transforming online learning for CLE in South Africa.  It is also the first online platform to offer self-paced modules specifically created to explain legal concepts to non-lawyers and to explain theoretical concepts in practical terms.

Clearlaw is an SME, and is currently a Level 4 BEE entity.

While legal practitioners certainly learn daily in their chosen areas of law, is this kind of ‘on the job’ learning sufficient to ensure that legal services are delivered to the highest levels of quality, professionalism, value and innovation? Keeping up to date with case law, changes in legislation and trends in the legal field, while maintaining high standards, is difficult, especially for practising lawyers with full caseloads. Clearlaw’s continuing legal education (CLE) programme helps you improve the quality of your and your team’s services as lawyers or legal professionals.

Everyone needs to be clear about Law

We know that most people who aren’t lawyers don’t even read the smallprint when they to sign an agreement or agree to terms and conditions for services.  They assume they won’t understand it and anyway there’s nothing you can do about it.

You won’t be a lawyer if you do our courses, but you will understand – among other things – what an NDA is, whether you should agree to a fixed term contract, what your rights are if you buy something and it doesn’t work, why you need a Will, and what your lease means.
