PESHAWAR: 

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan issued a no objection certificate (NOC) to the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Judicial Academy for awarding degrees. The academy also decided to establish the K-P Judicial Studies and Research Institute on campus.

Dr Adnan Khan, the academy’s director, said they were a recently established institution and it was an achievement to be recognised as a degree-awarding institute so quickly. He added the academy was the first of its kind in the subcontinent.

The academy plans to start running a postgraduate diploma, LLM, certificate courses and PhD programmes with the purpose of bringing reforms to the judicial system. Khan assured classes would start soon.

The director pointed out a team from the HEC, including its chairman Syed Imtiaz Gillani, visited the academy to check if it had the facilities to be able to award degrees. The NOC was issued after.

    it is a good sign that KPK has now started academic and other activities as it almost a decade to remain in fire after Talibanisation, and HEC would definitely be appreciated on granting NOC to KPK Judicial Academy for awarding Degrees.

    I had many class mates from KPK who travelled to Karachi for conducting LLB and other law degrees, when I was conducting LLB from SM Law college in 2002, so it will quite easy for KPK students to conduct law academic programs while staying in there own city.
