At the heart of democracy is the promulgation and application of legislation that is in the service of the rule of law.
The LegalB online database has been created by Advocate Rita Felgate as a tool for legal professionals such as herself, that assist in identifying whether the promulgation and application of South African legisltion falls above or below that fine line above which the rule of law operates, and below which it fails.
