Registration is now open for the Law Society of South Africa’s annual general meeting and conference which will take place on Friday 9 April 2021. The conference will focus on one of the key challenges for the legal profession; financial sustainability.
We have invited newly elected Legal Services Ombuds, Siraj Desai to give an address on his office and to answer questions from the floor. The LSSA is committed to the rule of law and access to justice and believes that the Judge Desai’s appointment is essential to enhance the ethical responsibilities of the profession and to protect the public.
The conference will be preceded by the annual general meeting (AGM) in the morning at the same venue as the conference. The AGM is open to all practitioners.
The rest of the day will be devoted to discussions on the structure, financial sustainability, and governance of the LSSA and the provincial attorneys’ associations. There will also be a panel discussion on what members can expect from their professional association, focusing on what members expect from the LSSA.
Registration for the conference is free. Please register here. Please make sure to also let us know whether you will be attending the conference virtually or physically by ticking the relevant box on the online registration.
