oa De Rebus - Legal Practice Act : what's happening now? : editor's note



Since the enactment of the Legal Practice Act 28 of 2014 in September 2014, reasonable progress has been made. To recapitulate, the organised legal profession has entered the transitional phase of the Legal Practice Act. During this phase, the National Forum on the Legal Profession (NF), which was established in terms of ch 10 of the Legal Practice Act - which was enacted earlier this year - is tackling its tasks to iron out all issues and ensure a smooth handover to the envisaged legal Practice Council (LPC). The NF will be in existence for a period not exceeding three years from February 2015. This transitional phase is the first phase of implementing the Legal Practice Act, with the second phase following once the NF has completed its duty.
