One of the main advantages to becoming a member of SARIPA is that you will receive regular 'Insolvency Law Updates' written and researched by Mr Martinus (Tienie) Cronje. Part of Tienie's vast knowledge and experience comes from his years as a Researcher at the South African Law Reform Commission.

Tienie was also a Principal Researcher for the Review of the Law of Insolvency and Administration of Estates. Now happily retired, he is contracted to SARIPA to do our regular Insolvency Law Updates.
