oa De Rebus - Beating the blacklist: what's the best way to go?



Attorneys have long been unhappy with the 'blacklist', a monopolistic tool used by advocates to ensure that their fees are paid. However, they differ on the means that should be employed to get rid of the blacklist. Some believe that a deal should be struck with the Bar, while others believe a tougher approach is the way to go. Yet others believe the system will die a natural death. The difference of opinion was highlighted at the annual general meeting of the Law Society of the Transvaal towards the end of last year, when a proposed deal with the advocates was convincingly rejected (see 1996 DR 779-780).
