This technique provides a multi-level and nuanced overview of a series of individual experiences from five decades that Broun has collected and worked on in thematic chapters that follow the course of a life story, starting with the experiences of early childhood and school and culminating in the story of Dullah Omar, Minister of Justice in the first democratically elected parliament. Many details are revealed: about the intricacies of studying for a law degree, acquiring articles or the scholarship (since South Africa had and still has a shared bar), starting or joining law firms and practicing law in a usually unfavorable and often hostile environment, whether the practice is political or simply criminal or transfer-oriented. Almost even more useful, however, is the huge amount of information about the lives of black South Africans who lived through apartheid and which is revealed almost by chance through interviews. Dolly Mokgatle reflects on her experiences with Bantu training (p.54); Dikgang Moseneke`s brief and insightful explanation of the mechanisms of state pressure on black businessmen and the tensions that this pressure created in township communities contextualized the divisions that manifested themselves so intensely in the 1980s (p.101); or Pansy Tlakuta`s memory of being part of the first group of black students to live on the seemingly liberal Wits campus, where “the passage downstairs from my room was a bathroom that no white girl ever used. It was mine for the two years, which was beautiful! (p.82) Copyright (c) 2000 by H-Net, all rights reserved.

Kenneth S Broun, in Black Lawyers, WhiteCourts, chose to create as much space as possible for the voices of his project participants to record and understand as much as possible the lives of a select group of twenty-seven black lawyers in South Africa who transcend several generations and former “racial categories” while sharing a common history of pre-democratic legal education. South Africa in 1994. Broun`s ties to black lawyers in South Africa date back to the darkest days of the mid-1980s and his work as a guest lawyer conducting litigator programs for the Black Lawyers Association-Legal Education Centre, although the heart of the book consists of lengthy transcripts of a series of interviews conducted over a five-month period in 1996. The transcripts are edited and positioned in short contextualizing passages that describe the social and political history of South Africa during this period and go far beyond providing a rich but discreet framework for the words of the lawyers themselves.
Broun uses the words and experiences of a remarkably articulate and thoughtful group of participants to build a work that evokes many things we can think we already know about the experiential dimensions of apartheid and its predecessors. In the details of the interview transcripts and in Broun`s careful contextualization of his documents, there are a wealth of details about the lives and practices of black lawyers before 1994 and the nature of the apartheid regime. In addition to works such as Richard Abel`s Politics by other means or Stephen Ellman`s In a time of trouble , Kenneth Broun`s excursion into the lives of black lawyers has much to say about life as it was lived in apartheid South Africa. This training is designed to improve lawyers` advocacy skills, process technique and trust. It is based on a learning-by-doing approach. The main objectives of this programme are to build the capacity and improve the skills of lawyers. Make them accessible to historically disadvantaged lawyers in South Africa.

Belinda Bozzoli, Women of Phokeng: consciousness, life strategy and migrancy in South Africa, 1900-1983 (Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Heinemann, >1991). Although there are long traditions in South Africa of using oral narration and performance as strategies for conveying information, social knowledge and understanding of the past, the expanded and deeper techniques of oral history (or sociological interview of life history) have been surprisingly little used nowadays in South Africa. Of course, some notable exceptions such as Belinda Bozzoli`s Women of Phokeng have been produced, which make extensive use of the words, contexts, and meanings of the project`s interviewees/collaborators in the published text. However, there were only a few such projects.
What was much more common was the use of highly structured interviews (or questionnaires/focus groups) through which evidence (or, more precisely, data) was collected and then essentially integrated into the lead author`s text. 2 PRELIMINARIES Program Delegated Program Teachers Our SponsorsOur Hosts Course Management Siyanda Mtirara, Commercial Law Project Manager Black Lawyers Association – Legal Education Centre 33 Hoofd Street Forum 7, Braampark Braamfontein, 2017 Tel: Fax: Cell: [USE ONLY FOR EMERGENCIES] CHAPTER PowerPoint Presentation Prepared by Susan McManus, Mount Royal College CHAPTER PowerPoint ® ® Presentation prepared by Susan McManus, Mount Royal College.

This would have provided useful context for the material itself (and the people involved) as well as for our understanding and development of this type of research exercise. Despite this shortcoming, the transcripts appear to reveal a relatively unstructured approach to interviews, allowing participants to tell their stories in their own words and in their own contexts and sequences.
