Chief Justice Saqib Nisar recently stated that “our judicial system needs fundamental reforms in laws to cope with the increasing litigation and to dispel the public perception about delay in justice”.
He stated that despite working hard and beyond office hours, the size of litigation is not decreasing.
According to him, one of the reasons for increasing litigation is non-availability of sufficient judges at all levels and the absence of stringent provisions to discourage frivolous litigation.
The chief justice emphasised the importance of alternate dispute resolution (ADR) in the resolution of disputes without burdening the already overburdened formal justice system.
