The Society of Advocates of KwaZulu-Natal

Council of the Bar and
has the following objects:
1. The protection of the interests
of the Bar in Natal, and of the individual members of the Society
in their professional capacity

3. The consideration and promotion
of improvements in the teaching and practice of the law and in
the administration of justice.
Membership is open to every
Advocate admitted or enrolled in KwaZulu-Natal and practising
there as an Advocate only, subject to that person satisfying the
requirements of the Society. Associate membership is open to certain
categories of persons reflected in the Constitution of the Society.
There are two centres at which members of the Society
1. Pietermaritzburg, the seat of the Natal
Provincial Division of the High Court of South Africa; and
2. Durban, the seat of the Durban and Coast
Local Division of the High Court of South Africa.
Whilst the affairs of the Society are run
by the Bar
Council, comprising members from each centre, each
centre has its own Constitution and runs certain affairs, largely
relating to housing and the like, which can more practically be
dealt with by the centres individually.Chambers in Pietermaritzburg
are located in a single building situated at 17 Prince Edward
Street, which is conveniently situated for access to both the
High Court and the Magistrate’s Court.Members practising
in Durban are, at present, located in four buildings, namely Salmon
Grove Chambers, 407 Smith Street, Durban, Durban Club Place,
6 Durban Club Place, Durban, 40 Masonic Grove, Durban and The Marine, 22 Gardiner Street, Durban.
