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. He attended the University of Fort Hare and the University of the Witwatersrand, where he studied law. While in his first year, he was expelled from the University of Fort Hare after joining a student protest. He later completed his BA degree through the University of South Africa (Unisa), which he followed up with a law degree from the University of the Witwatersrand.
