In today’s world, correct information is key to ensuring a successful business, more so in the legal fraternity, as this might set your firm apart from competitors.

The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) has partnered with LexisNexis to develop a review of legal practice in South Africa. The report will be focussed primarily on the changing legal landscape, particularly trends in technology, equity and practice management.

To develop the report, the LSSA requires legal practitioners to complete a survey. By completing the survey, legal practitioners will assist in contributing to the knowledge pool and assist the LSSA in making more informed decisions relating to the attorneys’ profession and the environment in which practitioners are practising in today.

By participating in the survey, practitioners will be ensuring that they receive a copy of the results. The results of the survey will provide practitioners with valuable insights as they compare their firm against the status quo. All responses will be confidential and the report will provide cumulative results only.

In addition to the survey findings, participants will receive a 15% discount voucher for the LexisNexis online bookstore and stand a chance to win an iPad and access to selected LexisMobile titles for 12 months.

The survey is conducted online, however, participants can opt to conduct the survey telephonically. Links to the survey are available on the De Rebus website and app.
