Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJ) Qazi Faez Isa will hear various civil and criminal cases at the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry for five days—from April 22 to April 26.

The CJ will head a three-member bench also comprising Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail and Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan.

The Supreme Court was restructured in its modern form in 1956 by the Part VIII of the Constitution, which stipulates that the "judicial power of Pakistan, shall be vested in one Supreme Court" together with any lower courts [that] Congress may establish.

Article 185(1) further specified the Court's original and appellate jurisdiction, created four judicial high courts, and a system of entering an appeal against punishment rendered by the high courts.
