    Thank you for a terrific ICL conference this week. I was particularly interested in a comment made during the conference that one of the aspects of an ICL’s make up is ” courage” . I have previously been told by a judge in a difficult case to remain ” courageous” in the face of a difficult and obstructive party. I have been told by a colleague that works in the lawyers disciplinary association in SA that ICL’s are targets for complaints. I am certainly aware of at least one case where an ICL felt compelled to withdraw from a matter because of the ongoing intimidation and complaints by a party (all of which she was bound to respond to). Being able to meet and have a forum for ICL’ s is, in my view, a great support for such a complex and often challenging role.
