The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) was invited to a joint meeting with the Chinese Law Society and the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) on 17 August. The LSSA was asked to participate in co-hosting the 6th Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) Legal Forum set to take place towards the end of November 2015. The LSSA subsequently had a productive meeting with the NPA on 27 August to discuss their respective roles, as well as discuss what can be done collectively and individually for the successful co-hosting of the event. The event will bring together lawyers from the African continent and China to discuss, among others, the role of lawyers in facilitating trade.
