Paul Ngobeni was born and raised in Lydenburg, Mpumalanga, South Africa. He graduated with a BA (magna cum laude) from Hamilton College, New York and Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from New York University School of Law.

Mr Ngobeni was recently appointed to serve on the Task Team advising the African National Congress on constitutional law matters where he assisted in designing its legal strategy for defending President Jacob Zuma against pending corruption charges. He has also served as a consultant for the South African Ministry of Housing on various legal matters, including transformation.
