Lewis & Ky­rou’s Handy Hints on Le­gal Prac­tice is in­dis­pens­able for young le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers, ex­pertly bridg­ing the gap be­tween le­gal train­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence. This sec­ond South African edi­tion high­lights good prac­tice in terms of the re­la­tion­ships with clients, other prac­ti­tion­ers, the courts and the com­mu­nity as well as Prac­tice Man­age­ment.

Much has hap­pened since the pub­li­ca­tion of the first South African Edi­tion of Handy Hints on Le­gal Prac­tice. The glob­al­i­sa­tion of the le­gal pro­fes­sion has em­braced South Africa and many law firms have part­ners all over the world. The num­ber of le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers in this coun­try has al­most dou­bled since 1996 and many of them are prac­tis­ing as sin­gle HANDY HINTS ON LE­GAL PRAC­TICE, prac­ti­tion­ers from small of­fices in the sub­urbs or from their homes with­out the sup­port of se­nior men­tors.

It is to­wards these prac­ti­tion­ers that this sec­ond South African edi­tion of Handy Hints on Le­gal Prac­tice is par­tic­u­larly di­rected. It con­tains a wealth of use­ful guide­lines and prac­ti­cal tips specif­i­cally with re­gard to pro­fes­sional con­duct and the man­age­ment of their prac­tices from which they will hope­fully reap many re­wards.

The prac­tis­ing lawyer needs to know what to do and how to do it. He or she must know and up­hold the eth­i­cal stan­dards which en­sure im­par­tial, fair and ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tion of the law, equal­ity be­fore the law and re­spect among its prac­ti­tion­ers. This is a book which tells us how the le­gal sys­tem works and how lawyers put the rules of law to work in our com­mu­ni­ties.
