|In terms of the Legal Practice Act 28 of 2014, legal practitioners (attorneys and advocates) fall under the regulatory and disciplinary jurisdiction of the Legal Practice Council.
All legal practitioners are bound by a strict professional code.
It is the function of the Legal Practice Council to act in the public interest. The Legal Practice Council is committed to protecting the public against unprofessional and irresponsible conduct by legal practitioners and will investigate complaints which are submitted to it in good faith and which fall within its jurisdiction. Complaints about legal practitioners should, therefore, be lodged with the Legal Practice Council
