Where did you hear about us?


A lawyer is basically almost anyone that operates in the legal profession.  It is a legal professional who has an LLB degree and who is practising law.  Advocates and attorneys are also lawyers, however, a lawyer is not necessarily an advocate or attorney.

Legal secretaries, paralegals or legal assistants are not lawyers. An attorney is also a lawyer

An important part of becoming an attorney is to write the four attorneys’ admission exams:

  • Paper 1: Court Procedures
  • Paper 2: Administration of Estates
  • Paper 3: Attorney’s Practice (Ethics)
  • Paper 4: Accounting 

Advocates are experts in presenting and arguing cases in court. Advocates mainly engage in two activities: 

  • Arguing and presenting cases in court on behalf of attorneys, however, new South African law now allows attorneys to argue cases in court; and
  • Give legal opinions and help with drafting of legal documents related to their field of specialisation. 

Advocates generally need skills to present and argue cases in court while attorneys mostly use their general knowledge of the law to consult with their clients and give legal advice. 

Attorneys in South Africa generally give legal advice, meet with clients, and write up contracts.  They also usually specialise in one aspect of the law, such as Family Law, Tax Law, or Commercial Law.

A litigator (often referred to as a trial lawyer) is type of lawyer that handles the litigation process in civil cases. Litigation refers to the process of taking legal action against another person, group or business to solve a dispute. Litigators can represent either defendants or plaintiffs and often spend time arguing cases in the courtroom. The process can include investigation, trials, settlements, appeals and more. Not all litigation will end up in court, but a litigator is well prepared to handle this legal process when necessary.
