Advocates have specialized expertise in various areas of the law, especially in the presentation of cases in court. The Bar enforces a strict code of ethical conduct and professional integrity to which advocates are required to adhere. The Free State Bar is dedicated to ensuring that its members render the highest standard of legal services.
Legal representation in the courts is a fundamental right of all South Africans. Advocates are primarily experts in the art of presenting and arguing cases in court.It is the advocate's duty to use his expertise to ensure that people's freedom is in no way compromised, nor their rights denied.
Advocates are organized into societies in the major centers in South Africa, historically known as "Bars". As the body representing the advocates' profession, the purpose of the Free State Bar is to maintain professional standards and conduct among practicing advocates, and to enforce discipline amongst its members.
