Question #198339

With reference to the attorneys act 53 of 1979 and the legal practice act 28 of 2014 determine whether a legal practioner can be both an attorney and an advocate

Expert's answer

The Act acknowledges that the profession is fragmented and divided with different laws applying in different parts of the Republic and that access to legal services and opportunities within the profession are restricted. The Act’s stated purpose is to create a single regulatory body, to ensure that legal services are accessible to the public and entry into the profession is unrestricted in order to bring the legal profession in line with the Constitution’s transformative ideal. Therefore, a legal practitioner cannot be both an attorney and an advocate.
