The Law Society of Namibia has announced a proposal to give equal representation to black and white lawyers on the Law Society Council
For the last few years the society has come under attack from the Namibia Law Association (NLA), a pressure group for black lawyers in Namibia. The NLA claims that the society does not adequately represent the interests of black lawyers or those from disadvantaged communities in Namibia. The council currently has nine members, seven of whom are white. The society has proposed amendments to the Legal Practitioners Act, to be floated at a special meeting of the Law Society on 26 July. "It should endeavour to heal the rift that exists between the Law Society and the NLA," said Ruben Philander, the vice-president of the Law Society.
