Dear Colleague,   



I have the honor to inform you that the undersigned has been nominated as a Coordinator Juveniles and Minority cell of Punjab Bar Council.



The Punjab Bar Council came into being as a result of the promulgation of the Legal Practitioners and Bar Councils Act, 1973 (Act XXXV of 1973). The Council commenced functioning with effect from 1st January 1974.


The Punjab Bar Council consists of the Advocate-General of the Province, as Ex-officio Chairman and the Members elected by the Advocates across the Province.


Five years, beginning on the first day of January of the year. The elections are held, so as to conclude on or before the thirtieth day of November in the year in which the term of the Bar Council expires, and the Members elected by the Advocates.


I would like to invite any local or international NGO’s to visit us or to arrange any event on Juveniles and Minorities issues in Bar Council and if possible, please include my email on your mailing list and let me know of your upcoming trainings/workshop/conference on Juveniles and minorities issues by your organization.


Looking forward to hearing from you!
