Nobahle Mangcu-Lockwood

Advocate, Cape Bar

Nobahle Mangcu-Lockwood is spellbound by the cut-throat nature and challenges offered by the legal profession. Mangcu- Lockwood is an advocate at the Cape Bar and was in the centre of one of the most controversial challenges the legal system has faced in recent years. In May last year, she was a member of the counsel representing political parties � the African Christian Democratic Party, DA, Independent Democrats and the United Democratic Movement � in a bid to prevent the Scorpions from being disbanded. Prior to that, Mangcu-Lockwood was an attorney at Cheadle, Thompson & Haysom, where she specialised in labour law and general public policy work. She's an LLB graduate from the University of Cape Town. � Jane Steinacker
