Code's implementation delayed

* It was resolved by the Legal Practice Council at its meeting on Thursday that the Code of Conduct as gazetted by the National Forum on 10 February 2017 will not come into effect on 1 November. The LPC will publish it for comment as required by section 36(5) of the Legal Practice Act of 2014. As such the new court robing code is suspended until further notice, notes a statement by Kathleen Dlepu, chairperson of the LBC.
