Addressing the joint gathering of incoming and outgoing cabinets of Supreme Court Bar Association, the Hon’ble Chief Justice said that it is a matter of great pleasure and privilege for him to receive the newly elected cabinet members and added that there is a close nexus between the Bench and the Bar. Both are integral parts of the system of administration of justice. It is the duty of the Bench to dispense justice in accordance with law and the Constitution without fear or favour while it is the duty of the Bar to assist the Bench in dispensation of justice to public at large. Therefore, it is incumbent upon both of them to address the expectations and legal needs of people by deciding their cases expeditiously. For the cause of administration of justice, the role of Bar is very crucial, inasmuch as without the assistance and cooperation of Bar, the goal of administration of justice cannot be achieved. A strong Bar is sine qua non for a strong and an independent judiciary. Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan emphasized that the lawyers should not seek unnecessary adjournments and avoid strikes which cause delay in the process of justice. The people expect that in our country independent judiciary must work and dispense justice in accordance with law and the Constitution.
The outgoing President Mr. Fazal-e-Haq Abbasi also appreciated his lordship’s contribution for the cause of administration of justice. The President of newly elected Cabinet of Supreme Court Bar Association Mr. Ali Zafar said that he and his Cabinet will extend full cooperation to strengthen the institution. The nexus between the Bench and Bar is important to achieve the goal of providing justice to people at their doorsteps.

At the end, the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan thanked the delegations and the delegations also thanked the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan and Mr. Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, Senior Puisne Judge of Supreme Court of Pakistan for sparing time for them.
