Name change announcement

November 1st, 2013

The Independent Association of Advocates of South Africa has changed its name to the National Bar Council of South Africa (NBCSA). The chairperson of the NBCSA, Mark Hawyes told De Rebus that it was resolved to change the name at its annual general meeting held in June because, with the previous name, the community thought that the NBCSA was linked to independent advocates, which was not the case. The new name came into effect on 9 June 2013.
