Summary report on establishment meetings for the LSSA provincial attorneys’ associations
South Africa - LSSA
The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) has held eight meetings regarding the establishment of provincial attorneys’ associations around the country. These took place at the following places:
- East London: 2 October 2019 (and follow up meeting on 6 November 2019)
- Limpopo: 24 October 2019
- Bloemfontein: 25 October 2019
- Nelspruit: 29 October 2019
- Kimberley: 31 October 2019
- Durban: 14 November 2019
- Cape Town: 20 November 2019
The only province that the LSSA could not hold a meeting at was the North West as the attendance confirmation number was too low. This meeting has been postponed to a date still to be confirmed, in January next year.
The LSSA was given a good reception at almost all the provinces. The LSSA was able to get buy-in from the attorneys present for the establishment of LSSA provincial attorneys associations due to the general views expressed that it was important to be affiliated to an established and recognised body such as the LSSA, noting that as the LSSA constituent bodies make up just a fraction of the total number of attorneys in the country.

At a time when South Africa’s economy is flatlining and Eskom is failing, Government has proposed an amendment to the Bill of Rights, which will allow it to confiscate people’s homes without compensation.
This article will address four issues. First, the State’s current powers in terms of S25 of the Constitution to expropriate land without compensation. Second, how this will change if the amendment Bill is passed. Third, the international law obligation on the State to pay appropriate compensation in cases of expropriation. Fourth, reasons not to amend the Constitution.
