The Centre for Applied Legal Studies (CALS) in partnership with the Foundation for Human Rights has released its final research report on the Transformation of the Legal Profession project. The research was conducted from 15 February to 31 August. The research indicates that across the profession in Gauteng, lawyers are experiencing a range of hostility and exclusionary conduct based particularly on race and gender. CALS believes that this hostility is causing the stultification of excellence and the effective repression of talent in the profession. De Rebus news editor, Nomfundo Manyathi-Jele, analysed the findings and compiled this article.
