The legal fraternity has been mourning the loss of 'one of the greatest moral compasses', former President Nelson Mandela, who died on 5 December at the age of 95. Former President Mandela was South Africa's first democratically-elected president, an icon of peace and reconciliation the world over and a lawyer at heart.
