Justice & Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola, by notice in the Government Gazette on 11 August, has published new regulations in terms of the Legal Practice Act governing the rendering of community service by legal practitioners, both candidate and practising.

Legal practitioners will be obliged to perform 40 hours of community service per year, and candidate attorneys 8 hours.

We would like to invite legal practitioners to sign up to staff our legal clinics and help desks, take on cases and present workshops and webinars. There is a sign-up form on the home page of our website at www.probono.org.za
