ADMITTED 25 YEARS AGO TODAY

On 29 August 1995 I was admitted as an attorney. It was a tremendously proud day for me, marking as it did the end of a long journey which begins with school, went through two degrees at university, the Practical Legal School in Durban where I was the class Chairperson, and then one year of articles at David Levithan.

I was admitted in the Pretoria High Court and the advocate that assisted me with the application, was extremely bright and very influential in my career at that time, John Peter has subsequently become a Senior Counsel and will no doubt, in due course, become a judge.

It is amazing how quickly time flies - I really do not think it has been 25 years although if I went on the basis of stress then it probably felt like 50 years. If I went on the basis of time, I would say it probably feels more like 10 to 15 years. There are so few attorneys that last 25 years in the profession that the Law Society actually gives out certificates to them at the Annual General Meeting. But, since I know the real purpose of those certificates, it is not something I would attend, simply to collect a certificate. The real purpose, and I sat on the Law Society when they came up with the idea, is to get more people in attendance at the AGM and to sit through six or seven hours, to collect a framed “endurance” certificate is just not me. It is about what it means to me, what I have achieved as opposed to time, and not getting any accolades in front of a crowd.
