LSSA provincial attorneys’ associations establishment meetings

The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) is currently busy with a drive across the country to establish provincial LSSA attorneys’ associations in all 9 provinces as set out in the LSSA constitution. The aim is to encourage the existing structures to be part of the LSSA provincial structures.

In order to gain a better understanding of your needs, please put aside time to attend the establishment meetings across the country as it is a critical step in the establishment of the attorney’s associations so that the LSSA can establish a body that best represents you.

The first such meeting was held in the Eastern Cape, in East London and was attended by some 70 practitioners. It was a fruitful meeting as the LSSA got buy in from the Eastern Cape attorneys. The LSSA will be having a follow up meeting there in the first week of November.

The date of the other establishment meetings are outlined below. All meetings will be held at 16h30 unless otherwise advised.

Limpopo – Thursday 24 October
Bloemfontein – Friday 25 October
Mpumalanga (Nelspruit) – Tuesday 29 October
Northern Cape (Kimberly) – Thursday 31 October
Western Cape (Cape Town) – Thursday 7 November
KwaZulu- Natal (Durban) – Friday 14 November
North West – Tuesday 19 November (Hunters Rest)
