Abstract

This article explores the current organization of the South African bar and describes the legal education system and the licensing requirements for both attorneys and advocates, as well as those for foreign attorneys. Interspersed throughout the article are discussions of the system’s strengths and weaknesses, particularly in light of the transformation required after the end of apartheid, including some of the key challenges still facing South Africa.
