Position held: 
Candidate attorney: Strategic Litigation Unit

Lusungu is a Candidate Attorney with LHR’s Refugee and Migrant Rights Programme and Strategic Litigation Unit.

She completed her LLB from the University of Johannesburg in 2009 before joining LHR in 2010. Lusungu has gained invaluable experience from LHR’s various programmes, including exposure to different litigious matters within the programmes.

Lusungu joined LHR to follow her interest in working in public interest litigation, helping those who could otherwise not afford legal assistance.

“Being a migrant I have first-hand experience of the challenges of integration in a new country, so I was attracted to the Refugee and Migrant Rights Programme – making LHR a perfect fit.”
