A History of the Judiciary in Pakistan Hamid Khan One of the major organs of the state, the judiciary in Pakistan attained a particularly high profile in recent years owing to former president Musharraf’s attempt to remove the Chief Justice of Pakistan and the latter’s eventual restoration to office. The exercise of suo moto jurisdiction by the Supreme Court in the matter of enforcement of fundamental rights further enhanced interest in the judiciary, which became a focal point for popular aspirations. This book undertakes a comprehensive study of judicial history in Pakistan since Independence. It includes detailed discussion of the acts, lives, and judgments of important Pakistani judges, with their continuing effects on the life of the nation. This book will be of particular value to lawyers, judges, law professors, and to students of law, political science, and history, as well as the general reader. Family Laws in Pakistan Muhammad Zubair Abbasi & Shahbaz Ahmad Cheema This book provides the latest and updated account of the principles and practices of family laws in Pakistan.

Various chapters of the book cover general principles of family law, demonstrate their application based on the facts of each case, trace patterns of developments in case law, rationalise conflicting judicial authorities, and propose law reform, wherever required. This is the first book that takes into account personal laws of non-Muslims in Pakistan and covers important issues related to conflict of personal laws.
