The Action Group on Briefing Patterns in the Legal Profession  – which comprises representatives of the Law Society of South Africa, the General Council of the Bar, Advocates for Transformation and the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development – invites law firms to align themselves with the Procurement Protocols on briefing which have been adopted by the legal profession.

Representatives of law firms with a mandate to sign their firms’ commitment to the protocols can sign the protocols.

The ‘Expression of Interest’ form and Procurement protocols can be downloaded below, signed and then returned to the LSSA. The firm will be included in the list of law firms that have committed to the protocol on the LSSA website. Firms will be required to report on their briefing patterns on a six-monthly basis.
