Sri Lanka lawyers visit LSSA

August 1st, 2014

By Barbara Whittle

A round-table discussion was held in Pretoria in June 2014 between the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) and a group of Sri Lankan lawyers. The LSSA was represented by Co-chairperson Ettienne Barnard and Council member Krish Govender. Discussions covered recent developments in the profession in both South Africa and Sri Lanka, particularly the independence of the profession; court-annexed mediation, as well as the role of civil society organisations and legal aid institutions in providing access to the courts.
