Laws.Africa: Front-end Engineer (April 2021- December 2022)

Laws.Africa provides digital, high-quality and accurate African law to audiences in Africa and the world.

I helped develop and launch two law resource sites: LawLibrary and AGP AfricanLii contributing to the front-end of those websites. AGP AfricanLII is a site that provides free digitised law and policy of the African Governance Architecture and LawLibrary is a site that provides South African consolidated legislation, case summaries, caselaw collections by subject, and legal commentary. Some notable features I developed on those websites were the following:

  • Multifaceted document search.

  • Interactive navigation in the site’s HTML/PDF document via the table of contents and search box.

I also helped build the organisation’s web component library @laws-africa/web-components (still in beta), which consists of widgets that are used for formatting and adding interactivity to digitised documents. It has been used across various internal organisational projects. The library is still very much a work in progress and we have made plans to improve the documentation and stories for components in the near future.

ASSA aims to establish and monitor standards of professional practice for actuaries, maintain a rigorous disciplinary process, and advance actuarial skills and knowledge to name a few.

Our team re-developed the previous process into a fully functioning web platform which provided ASSA with the ability to track a student’s progress, track project history and improve the interaction between mentors and students.
