Alternate dispute resolution centre on the cards

Saturday, 5th February 2017

"LAHORE - Chief Justice of Lahore High Court Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah has said that collaboration between Judiciary and private sector could be a game changer.


He said that stay culture should be discouraged as it is hitting the economy hard. Nobody else could understand the value of time and money better than the business community therefore business disputes should be resolved instead of wasting time, he added.

He was speaking here at the Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry on Saturday. LCCI President Abdul Basit also spoke on the occasion and threw light on the LCCI efforts for the promotion of trade and economic activities.

The chief justice said, “We have to find out new ways for dispute resolution to save precious time and money. He said that concept of mediation is being promoted rapidly and the LCCI has taken an important initiative through establishing Mediation Center. He invited the LCCI to form a focal committee that should be integrated with the system of Lahore High Court through information technology.

He informed the LCCI members that for the first time in history, an Alternate Dispute Resolution Center is being established in the District Court in collaboration with the World Bank that would be inaugurated soon. He said that Punjab Judicial Academy is ready to extend cooperation to the Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry for conducting courses regarding mediation."
