National Legal Framework

The National Legal Framework seeks to answer the queries of ‘What legal aid do I have to solve this problem?’ The framework offers an exhaustive list of Acts and Rules that include only relevant sections and information.

Furthermore, the framework does not only put across the law, but also puts it forward in simple language that is straightforward, user-friendly and transparent. The content in italics is meant to comprehend, clarify and interpret the law, while the content in the normal font conveys the law verbatim and can be used officially.
