PESHAWAR: From next month, junior lawyers will have a chance to learn from their more experienced colleagues and improve their understanding of various specialised fields of law.
This was announced on Monday by the Peshawar High Court Bar Association at a condolence reference for a senior lawyer of the PHC and the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Mian Younas Shah, who passed away on August 8.
While addressing the gathering, senior lawyer Abdul Latif Afridi paid tribute to the late Mian Younas Shah saying he had full command over the Constitution of Pakistan and hundreds of law books.
In his address, PHCBA President Muhammad Isa Khan said that there were dozens of senior lawyers in the association, specialised in several fields of law such as civil, criminal and family affairs but their expertise remain unutilised during their lifetime.
“Thus, from the beginning of September, the PHCBA will initiate a series of lectures conducted by senior lawyers who will share their experience with junior lawyers,” said Khan.
PHC’s Justice Asadullah Khan Chamkani, Peshawar District Bar Association President Razaullah Khan, Barrister Zahoorul Haq and lawyers from various district associations attended the condolence reference.
The late lawyer, Shah, obtained early education from Karak and went on to win a gold medal from the University of Punjab in a law degree.
