The UCT Law Clinic has launched its new Refugee Rights Project website, thanks to weeks of hard work by the clinic's communication strategist, Johannes Sieverding.

Sieverding is a third-year student of international communication at Hanze University Groningen in the Netherlands. He is in Cape Town as part of the mandatory year-abroad programme required by his course, and has been working at the Law Clinic as an intern for five months.

This stint came on the heels of a six-month study sojourn in Macau, China.

"It's been an interesting journey from one culture to another," Sieverding said.

The website will act as an important communication tool to showcase the full gamut of work done by the Law Clinic, as well as their contributions to the faculty's research endeavour, and will be a valuable tool for scholars and clients of the clinic.
