Wesley John Rogers graduated in 2012 from the University of KwaZulu-Natal with a Bachelor of Laws degree, having excelled in criminal law and criminal procedure, as well as having a keen interest in this area of law, he decided immediately to specialize in this field.
Prior to graduation he spent approximately 2 months volunteering with Legal Aid South Africa for no remuneration. Having seen first hand the effects of a lack of competent legal representation had on the poor and vulnerable of society, he took up articles at this establishment, where he excelled and was awarded an annual achiever award.
Upon completion of articles, and on his admission as an Attorney of the High Court, he obtained employment as an associate at one of KZN’s top criminal law practices, where his field of expertise was greatly advanced in having run high profile and legally complex matters on his own. He further excelled in this practice having obtained an almost perfect success rate in matters which ran to trial, or were withdrawn on his submission of comprehensive representations to the State. Having spent in the order of four years at this practice, he decided to branch out on his own and establish this practice.
His expertise were further enhanced on his completion of a correspondence course in International Criminal Law via Case Western Reserve University, USA.
He has subsequently furthered his legal education by completing a UN certification in International Law from the International Business Management Institute in Berlin.
