05-Days TC Newly Inducted Lawyers Ron Across KP Province batch III 15-19 May 2017 concluded

The role of an advocate assumes a greater significance with every passing time. Effective service delivery is a sine quo non for maintaining the confidence of the people in the justice system of the country. Hence we are faced with a huge task to promote legal values, ethical standards and rule of law. Since there is always scope & need for the improvement, so therefore, and on the basis of experience from the two conducted trainings for the young lawyers we deemed it appropriate to introduce some modifications and changes in the modules.

          A Week long training program for young lawyers of batch three was arranged at KP Judicial Academy. The realization of the fact that lawyers need formal class room training is, no doubt, a paradigm shift. While experience has no match, one can’t help appreciate the usefulness of a learning environment a class room provides. The aims and objectives of the training were to inculcate and promote ethical values and standards; contribute to the capacity building of all stakeholders of the justice sector, gain diverse and ethical knowledge of ethics of the profession, explore failures of professional skills and how to address them, follow in letter and spirit the dictum of "Bench and Bar as two wheels of a chariot" .

01-Day Seminar on FATA Integration: Challenges & Prospects, 25 May, 2017 concluded

 The contemporary era has seen merger, integration and unification currents in the 1990s. Out of three integration processes- the German reunification case was more successful with a relatively smooth merger of the two states as the German Democratic Republic (the former East) merged into the Federal Republic of Germany (the former West). The integration and merger process that characterized the unification of Germany was the close and interlinked efforts of the stakeholders and institutions particularly
the legislative and judicial partnership in bringing political, economic, social and legal change. The KP-FATA merger case in many aspects is analogous to the East and West Germany, the micro analysis of the two cases shows visible political, economic, and social divide among the integrating units. One of the most difficult internal challenges KP government will face (like the Germany unification and integration process) is integrating the FATA population into KP society. The KP Judiciary in this regard can play a pivot role in the integration of FATA people with the rest of the country. But there is general confusion over the contours of the “Riwaj Act” and its consonance with the traditional Jirga system and the local justice system. The confusion amplifies over the proposed extension of local legal system to an area with conservatism as its core belief system- the case in this regard will be the extension of family courts to FATA. In this respect discourse between the two principle institutions i.e. provincial judiciary and provincial legislature is needed to mutual identify the impediments to the extension of local justice system and work out legal modalities for the smooth extension of local justice system that is more compatible with ‘Riwaj Act’ and that it may not ensue in conflict with the fundamental rights as well as other substantive laws extended to FATA.
The main objective of the workshop was to initiate a discourse on the future of legal setup in FATA vis a vis the “Riwaj Act” and Jirga System. Identification of issues and challenges in the duplication of local legal system to FATA and the legislative role in solving the impediments to the extension and working of the local justice system to FATA. The expected outcome will be clarity on the legal setup to be extended to FATA. Identification of issues and their legislative solution in the duplication process – extending the local legal system to FATA.

One Day Seminar on Fast Track Dispute Resolution For Investment Contracts And Transactions (23 May, 2017) concluded

  One day seminar on fast tract dispute resolution for investment contracts and transactions at KP  Judicial Academy on 23rd May 2017. More than 30 judges, lawyers, chambers of commerce, bar associations, representatives of the FATA political administration  and private enterprise were participated in the seminar .

This seminar takes a two-pronged approach providing basic information on investment contracts and transaction with special emphasis on informal dispute resolution mechanism. The second part was the analysis and identification of specific issues and gaps in the current system with recommendatory mandate for the establishment of procedures and rules for the conduct of fast track dispute settlement between contracting parties in particular the agreement involving investments.

To earn wealth is natural phenomena of every person for his future necessity; side by side it should help the growth of country’s economy. However, perils exists in the world of investing, while some are preventable others may be not. When dealing with investment professionals, there is always the possibility that disagreements over the proper management of funds will arise. Whether intentional or unintentional, problems may need to be sorted out. Possible problems include decisions made by money managers with the authority to make transactions or simply the execution of a stock trade by a broker. Keep in mind, however, that your rights may be limited by the agreements that were signed initiating a relationship with the target of your complaint.

The most common methods of dispute resolution are mediation and arbitration. These techniques allow for speedy and fair conclusions without the often exorbitant expenses normally associated with court proceedings. Mediation involves the use of a facilitator to help two parties reach an agreement. Arbitration involves a more structured presentation of evidence and results in a binding and final decision made by an independent individual called an arbitrator.

The objectives of the seminar are to provide an overview of the dynamics of contract formation and identification of issues in the current formal system. An overview of the mechanism of ADR with special focus on the practices prevailing in Pakistan and KP. Recommendations for the establishment of procedures and rules for the conduct of fast track dispute settlement between contracting parties in particular the agreement involving investments.

The recommendations shall be presented to hon'able Chairman/KPJA in order to approve the SOP's for establishing a Dispute Resolution Centre (DRC) in KPJA to ensure fast track dispute resolution to be effective in KP.
