      • Civil rights are the protections and privileges given to all citizens by law. As opposed to human rights which are the rights that
        individuals have from birth.

        Category of civil rights:

        The right to a fair investigation and trial if accused of a crime

        The right to vote

        The right to personal freedom

        The right to freedom of movement

        The right to equality before the law

        When citizens find that their civil rights are not being granted, they may form civil rights movements to claim equal protection for all
        citizens. They may also call for new laws to stop current discrimination.

        The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the United Nations Organisation and helps to motivate and
        encourage civil rights movements in many different countries.

        Hi, I’m Kailash Pillay, an attorney from the city of Johannesburg. My passion for the law
        stems from a desire to improve upon the lives of the vulnerable who fall prey to a
        corrupt system.
        I studied at the University of Johannesburg where I obtained my Bachelor of Laws
        degree, the starting point to the long journey of becoming a legal practitioner.
        This profession has taught me to persevere through the complexities of the law and to
        continually develop my skills as a legal professional.
