Johannesburg, 31 March 2022 –Tomorrow Judith February takes over at Freedom Under Law as its new Executive Officer.
A lawyer and a respected governance specialist and analyst, she is well-known as a media columnist on politics and democracy in South Africa.
FUL Chair Judge Johann Kriegler says: “FUL spent many months searching for a successor for Nicole Fritz, who was hard to replace. Our efforts have been rewarded: Judith February is exactly what we need. She joins us at a time when the Rule of Law is under unprecedented attack. Judith knows what this entails, and we’re glad to have her on board.”
Judith February herself comments that “South Africa is at a defining moment for the Rule of Law. I look forward to the challenges FUL faces at this time and am certain that we will be able to contribute to further entrenching the culture of constitutionalism in our country.”
