First National Rules of Law Initiatives week was organised by the Law Society of University of
Central Punjab. This week entailed a diverse range of activities focusing on legal health and
awareness about serious legal issues. First ever Legislative Theatre in Pakistan was in session. It
was juried by Justice (R) Syed Afzal Haider, accompanying him were government officers and
advocates from Supreme Court. The key focus of this initiative was to enlighten the audience
about the importance of a dialogue regarding the issues which are in dire need of legislation. One
such issue, virasat, was brought to light by a theatrical performance by the UCP Law Society.
The performance led to a panel discussion on the topic that was followed by an audience poll.
The topic raised by the society was supported by the majority of the audience and the panel
members. They then decided to promote it to the official legislative bodies in Pakistan, to see it
in effect.
The fun did not end there, as another important part of this initiative was a seminar on Cyber
Security. This seminar was conducted in collaboration with the Centre for Information
Technology (CIT), Community Development Foundation (CDF), Centre for Women
Entrepreneurship (CWE) and E-Pakistan. These are some of the most pertinent organizations
which are providing communal services in the areas of information technology, cyber security
and women empowerment in the digital world. The objective of this seminar was to inform our
youth, about present day cyber security challenges. It aimed to enable them to recognize the
threat and take necessary actions for protection in cyberspace. Moreover, this seminar made
young girls aware of the advantages of Information Technology for women empowerment.
As the week wound down, a legal health camp was also available for the students and faculty
members of the university. The camp was organized to understand the legal needs of people and
address their legal problems, by giving appropriate legal advice, free of cost and guiding them
about the necessary legal procedure. Associates from different law firms, renowned lawyers and
retired judges provided pro-bono services at this legal health camp and interacted closely with
the students.
All in all, this initiative taken by the UCP Faculty of Law provided an opportunity to the students
to gain valuable bona fide experience.
