Access to Justice

What’s at Stake

Courts in Pakistan are heavily backlogged with cases. It takes years for a case to make its way from beginning to end. This causes delays in the dispensation of justice and illustrates the famous legal maxim, ‘justice delayed is justice denied’.

Current Status

PILAP has written RTIs to the Law and Justice Commission of Pakistan and the National Assembly Standing Committee on Law and Justice asking about the implementation of the National Judicial Policy, the policy objectives of which include expeditious disposal of cases.
