National Forum on the Legal Profession was established by the Legal Practice Act, 2014 (Act 28 of 2014), as a body corporate with full legal capacity.
The role of the National Forum is to provide a legislative framework for the transformation and restructuring of the legal profession in line with constitutional imperatives so as to facilitate and enhance an independent legal profession that broadly reflects the diversity and demographics of the Country as set out in the Legal Practice Act.
The Forum is expected to level the playing field for the establishment of the Legal Practice Council and Provincial Councils.
