“I am delighted that Judge Kriegler, who has a distinguished career as a lawyer and judge in South Africa, is able to deliver our Annual Rule of Law Lecture. It is a privilege to have someone of such stature addressing us on what is a vital issue. The Bar’s contribution to the Rule of Law, particularly in countries which are young democracies, cannot be underestimated. I anticipate a fascinating lecture delivered by a judge who has been pivotal in the upholding of the Rule of Law in democratic South Africa.”
