The Centre for Law & Society has been set up for research, reform and development of law in Pakistan. Research and Development work is undertaken with a view to ensure that theory results in practice and practice is not devoid of knowledge. CLS has a Core Committee and an international Advisory Board which consists of leading advocates, queen’s counsels and academics from around the world who contribute and participate in the work on ground.
