He appreciated the efforts of his of officers working at the Academy in raising the Academy on its legs in a short span of time. Indicating further strength of the Academy, his lordship said:
We are looking towards new horizons to strengthen this Academy. You all must know that I wanted to make it center of excellence. This is ever first Judicial Academy having three Ph.D Scholars on its credit. Inshallah very soon we will be able to start L.L.M program.

The Chief Justice added that distant learning through FM radio channel would be launched soon:

InshaAllah, for imparting distant education, knowledge and training, we soon would have FM Radio this month through which would be additional channel of learning from the Academy by the suppressed class. The basic human rights or to say fundamental rights of these people like women, victims of domestic violence, children subjected to physical assaults and are dragged into immoral activities, the poor litigants who do not know about the Court proceeding and procedure how to institute a law suit or a complaint would get first hand informative instruction facilitating them to defend their due rights with convenience. This new addition in the Academy would prove much beneficial to various segments of the society.
