The Cape Town Attorneys Association has a long and rich history, tracing its roots back to 1935. The CTAA has always been and remain the largest association of attorneys in the Western Cape. CTAA members mainly operates in and around the Cape Town area.
Before the repeal of the Attorneys Act, the CTAA existed as an attorneys’ association governed by rule 4 of the rules of the Cape Law Society, and was then known as ‘Circle 1’.
With the coming into force of the Legal Practice Act, the CTAA now operates exclusively as a voluntary association.
