Litigation and Conflict Resolution Practice

During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to the struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. . . . . It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.Nelson Mandela’s statement from the dock in The State v. Nelson Mandela & others Joel Joffe, The State v. Nelson Mandela (Oneworld Book, 207)
