oa De Rebus - From pilot project to more than just a legal education institution : 25 years of the School for Legal Practice
In 1988 the Council of the then Association of Law Societies (ALS) - the forerunner of the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) - resolved to launch a pilot course for a six-month, full-time legal training school in Pretoria in 1990. The aim of the pilot was to investigate an alternative to articles of clerkship. At that stage, Keith Wilson was the President of the ALS, Prof JC van der Walt was the Director of Legal Education and Tony Hutchinson chaired the ALS's Standing Committee on Legal Education. The Attorneys Fidelity Fund (AFF) would provide the funding for the school and no tuition fees would be charged.
