The Cape Bar is dedicated to promoting the rule of law, independence of the judiciary and of the legal profession and access to justice for all.

Preferentially find black and/or women advocates in the advocate transformation directory. Search by name and seniority and find contact details quickly.


Applicants who are setting down applications for admission on 2 February 2024 are requested to file and serve applications for admission as advocates (including all the relevant supporting documents) by no later than 8 December 2023.  

This is to allow for sufficient time to consider applications during court recess.

The processes for admission as an advocate i.t.o. section 115 of the LPA and admission for membership of the Cape Bar are available here.
