South African Legislation is Not Always Easy to Navigate

Jul 15, 2016 | Blog, Industry news, Products

South African Legislation is not always easy to navigate. Not only is South Africa working with a hybrid legal system originating from a mix of Dutch and British legal systems, but it also takes into account indigenous customary laws. In addition, we have a Constitution that sets the rules of how the current government works. To make matters even more complicated, there are different spheres of government that make laws, the National, Provincial and Local Government.

This melting pot makes South Africa an exciting place to live in, however, it can be difficult to keep track of what is currently being debated or decided with any new South African legislation. For anyone practicing law it is critical to have access to current South African legislation.Even with the digital age in which we find ourselves, it can be difficult to find the right South African legislation online.
