What is this beast called transformation? The word transformation, since the advent of democracy, has been used as a catch phrase to define a societal change needed in South Africa. As inequality was the status quo during apartheid, every sphere of the country from business to government needed to transform so that it was generally representative of the demographics of the country. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word 'transformation' as: 'A marked change in form, nature, or appearance.' In relation to the law profession, what does the term actually mean? Does it only relate to the 'appearance' of the profession? In my view, the term has a much deeper meaning than just the colour of the profession.
