Tribute to Nelson Mandela

Bristol Law Society would like to pay tribute to the life of Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa.

In a message of condolence on behalf of Bristol Law Society, Ben Tarrant the President of Bristol Law Society said:

“I can remember reading Nelson Mandela’s autobiography Long Walk to Freedom as an 18 year old and even then it was clear to me that Nelson Mandela was one of the great moral and political leaders of our time and someone who wrote history. Nelson Mandela was a lawyer and dedicated his life defending human rights and the rule of law. There are lawyers all around the world who still put their lives on the line for this cause. Bristol Law Society offers our condolences to South Africa and his family and equally we celebrate his life and his impact on the world”.
