The Attorneys Act, (53 of 1979), defines "articles" or "articles of clerkship" as a written contract binding the candidate attorney to serve an attorney for a specified period in accordance with the Act. It is intended as a training period or internship during which a candidate attorney, having completed an LL.B degree, is to work under the direct supervision of a senior attorney, to receive exposure to different areas of law and to various types of legal matters. Coupled with the prescribed practical legal training course for candidate attorneys and the admission exams, this is a rewarding but demanding and challenging period in the life of any would-be attorney.
