The dispensation of justice in Pakistan

"This book is based on substantive research and includes papers contributed by prominent legal scholars. It looks at the role of the judiciary in society and discusses different problems encountered in the course of administering justice in Pakistan. The issues addressed include alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, public interest litigation, and certain historical aspects of justice. It presents suggestions, measures and remedies to improve the present system of justice and shows how alternative dispute resolution mechanisms can solve some of the problems faced by litigants. Further, it shows how the superior courts can provide appropriate justice in public and individual interests, and makes a comparative study of the legal systems of the USA, UK, India and other countries." "The appendices and annexures contain a wealth of data that can be of great help to researchers. Academics in the field of judicial training will find this book very useful."--BOOK JACKET
