Special section on pupillage

Advocate December 2007, Vol 20, No 3. Our cover: The contributions by Gerrit Pretorius SC (Something worthwhile to do in the winter recess, pp 20-24), Ben Swart SC (Transalp – 2006, p 14) and other items under Bar news illustrate how some members of the Bar pursue their passions outside of work. One of Gerrit’s photographs features on our cover.
