From the Publishers

Advocate is the official journal of the General Council of the Bar of South Africa. It appears three times a year and its circulation includes all practising advocates, judges, and a large number of other lawyers, senior government officials, and politicians. It is also available on general subscription. The address of the General Council of the Bar is: P0 Box 2260, Johannesburg 2000.

Menings en kommentaar in artikels is, tensy anders gestel, die verantwoordelikheid van die skrywer. Redaksionele menings en kommentaar is die verantwoordelikheid van die redakteur en publikasie daarvan dui nie noodwendig daarop dat dit die siening van die Algemene Balieraad weerspieel nie.
