Chief justice vows to ‘fix’ everything within six months
LAHORE: Taking exception to deteriorating standards of the law education, the Supreme Court on Wednesday summoned the vice chancellors of the public sector universities of Punjab along with details of the private law colleges affiliated with them.
Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar observed that he will fix everything within six months even if he had to conduct the hearing of cases on weekends.
He said this while hearing a case pertaining to affiliation of private law colleges with public sector universities in violation of the rules and regulations at the apex court’s Lahore registry.
CJP Nisar summoned the vice chancellors of the universities along with details of private law colleges accredited by them. They have been asked to swear an affidavit that the law colleges met the standards and were registered according to the relevant rules and regulations.
Moreover, he also sought details of a similar case pending in the Lahore High Court (LHC) and adjourned the hearing till January 20.
Earlier, hearing a similar case, LHC Chief Justice Mansoor Ali Shah had lamented that public sector universities have affiliated even one-room law colleges.
“It is awful to learn that law colleges established in shops and garages are affiliated with the universities.,” he added.
