SHAMIE Yvonne Khupe (center), the daughter of MDC-T president Thokozani Khupe, was on Thursday afternoon sworn in as a legal practitioner at the High Court of Zimbabwe.
The fact that a person has a law degree does not automatically make that person a legal practitioner.
Once you have successfully obtained your legal degree, you have the choice to become a legal practitioner or to seek employment where admission as a legal practitioner is not required.
Legal practitioners use titles such as attorneys, advocates, lawyers, legal advisors, etc to identify themselves according their employment choice.
Legal practitioners are Officers of the Court and take an oath to uphold the law. Legal practitioners should at all times act with the highest integrity en decorum.
Every practicing Lawyer must register and renew with the Law Society of Zimbabwe.
