Dear Mr Bassett
REPRESENTATIONS: LEGAL PRACTICE BILL
We attach hereto the submissions by the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) on the most recent version of the Legal Practice Bill (version headed “5: Copy of Legal Practice Bill as changed by Wilma and Lawrence”). These submissions are made as a matter of urgency, the LSSA having been given very limited time to furnish its submissions. The LSSA does not consider that there has been proper consultation with regard to what is proposed to be put before Parliament and reserves the right at an appropriate time to make further submissions and representations in relation to the Bill.
