The Law Society of England and Wales has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela. Law Society president Nicholas Fluck said “Nelson Mandela was a lawyer. He spent his life defending human rights and the rule of law. He campaigned for democracy, freedom and equality under the law.”

Law Society council member Tony Russell commented “His family and his nation will mourn now – we too mourn, but may I suggest that, before we reflect, we celebrate. One of his trademarks, and no doubt one of his greatest weapons in leading the way to reconciliation, was his broad, infectious, disarming smile. That showed his humanity and his humility.” (Law Society Gazette, 9/12/13).
