Letters to the editor – May 2017

May 1st, 2017

Letters are not published under noms de plume. However, letters from practising attorneys who make their identities and addresses known to the editor may be considered for publication anonymously.

Response to ‘No more free copy of De Rebus?’

I have just read your editorial ‘No more free copy of De Rebus’ (2017 (March) DR 3) in connection with the imminent demise of De Rebus.

As a South African-qualified attorney, now living in Geneva, I have come to rely on De Rebus to keep me informed on the evolution of the South African legal system. De Rebus has always been an invaluable source and well-executed publication.

I, for one, would be happy to pay an annual subscription to continue to receive such an important and informative publication.

Thank you for your continued work.

Tanya Robinson, senior company secretarial assistant, Geneva

I would like to take this opportunity to firstly thank you for all your hard work that goes into your publication.

I am an admitted attorney who diligently reads De Rebus each and every month to stay abreast of all the legal developments. I for one, would terribly miss this journal as I look forward to reading my copy. The attorneys’ profession cannot do away with the journal.

If funds are allocated to its publication somehow, we could look at only having a free electronic copy instead of the printed version?

I must thank you and your team for the amazing work you do. Always keeping us abreast with the latest legal developments. I cannot describe how important the work you do is, especially for young legal minds, like myself, that need to be kept up to date with developments in the legal field. Stay winning.
