About the Cape Bar

The Cape Bar is a society of advocates of the High Court of South Africa. Its members, each a specialist in litigation, practice independently and may be briefed only through an attorney.

The Cape Bar is dedicated to promoting the rule of law, independence of the judiciary and of the legal profession and access to justice for all. It strives to ensure that its members render the highest standard of legal services and is committed to changing the composition of its membership to be representative of South African society. To that end, the Cape Bar encourages fair and equitable briefing patterns. See the Cape Bar's Mission Statement and Model Policy on Fair and Equitable Briefing Patterns.
