Join us – LSSA conference and AGM

Join us – LSSA conference and AGM: The Maslow Time Square, Pretoria 29 and 30 March

The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) will be holding its annual general meeting (AGM) of the Council and annual conference at The Maslow Time Square, Pretoria on 29 and 30 March. As a legal practitioner, this will be an opportunity for you to meet with your colleagues, to raise issues of concern, to interrogate the LSSA on its activities and also attend free training sessions. The results of the LSSA’s Survey on Young Lawyers will be launched at the conference and a way forward drafted.

Since the provincial law societies no longer exist and will not be holding AGMs, this will be one of the few opportunities for practitioners to meet as a profession. There is no specific provision in the Legal Practice Act 28 of 2014 for the Legal Practice Council to hold annual meetings.

Register to attend the LSSA Annual Conference on the LSSA website at, or e-mail us on,za and we will assist you.
