Application for admission as an advocate

In terms of the Legal Practice Act, 2014, and as from 1 November 2018, the Cape Bar is no longer dealing with or considering applications for admission as an advocate, as this function has been taken over by the Legal Practice Council.

All applications for admission as an advocate have to be lodged with the Legal Practice Council (situated at 29th & 30th floors, ABSA Centre, 2 Riebeek Street, Cape Town, tel no. 021 443 6700).
