Delivering Justice in Pakistan: Opportunities and Challenges – Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah (Chief Justice, Lahore High Court)

by | Nov 15, 2017

The independence of Pakistan in 1947 from the British Raj left behind a colonial judicial legacy. In addition, the creation of an Islamic State brought with it its own interesting questions of judicial and constitutional interpretation. Justice Shah will focus on the challenges and opportunities that accompanied these transitions. Being a pioneer in issues relating to human rights, the rights of minorities and environmental law in Pakistan, Justice Shah is ideally placed to speak about the challenges of instituting change in a judicial system like Pakistan while balancing the need to effectively deliver justice.

This seminar is co-hosted with the South Asian Law Discussion Group.
