At the end of 2014 then LSSA Co-chairperson, Max Boqwana, represented the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) at the first BRICS Legal Forum in Brasilia, Brazil and signed the Brasilia Declaration, which outlines cooperation among the legal communities of the BRICS countries. Building on this initial contact, the LSSA hosted representatives of the Brazilian Bar Association and the China Law Society earlier this year. LSSA Co-chairpersons, Busani Mabunda and Richard Scott met with the representative of the Brazilian Bar Association in South Africa, Saul Tourinho Leal, in August in Pretoria and signed a memorandum of understanding between the two organisations for mutual support and exchange of information. The Co-chairpersons paid a courtesy visit to the Brazilian Bar Association in September and Mr Mabunda will be attending the annual general meeting of the Brazilian Bar Association in November this year.
