Cheyenne Van Douw completed her LLB Law degree at the University of South Africa. Cheyenne also attended lectures on a full-time basis at IPCE Illovo legal and paralegal college whilst completing her LLB.

Prior to studying her LLB, she travelled and worked abroad as an au-pair and when she returned to South Africa, she started her LLB degree.

At the end of her internship, the director of the firm in Bryanston afforded her the opportunity to serve articles for a period of two years. Whilst serving articles, Cheyenne attended and completed the mandatory LEAD training classes at the Wits University and completed all her board exams. After completion of her contract of articles, she joined Mncube Attorneys Incorporated as a volunteer, simply to expand her knowledge and gain experience in litigation proceedings and Labour law.


Cheyenne was mentored under the wings of the director of Mncube Attorneys Incorporated and was exposed to all areas of law. Cheyenne volunteered for period of 3-4 months and eventually started handling matters independently at the CCMA and was soon promoted to an associate and was in charge of the Labour law department at Mncube Attorneys.
