1Pakistanlawyers.org is serving since 1996, as a generic and scalable software product engineered to assist lawyers and other professionals in searching laws and case laws. It also facilitates the general public and law students to understand the law and provides them assistance. It has the privilege of being the "First website on law in Pakistan".
In technical sense Pakistanlawyers.org may be termed as a portal and being a law portal, it offers all the basic functionalities of a web portal which encompass searching of laws, case laws, and notifications as well as finding lawyers in Pakistan. The website is generic to some extent, yet it is specific to law and the law industry.
In addition to all these functionalities, the distinguishing feature of this web portal is the affiliation of the lawyer community with the website itself which helps content to be posted on the website and gives ideas and suggestions, thus making the website more and more comprehensive and goal-oriented.
All the above idiosyncratic functionalities make Pakistanlawyers.org the best and the favorite website on law in Pakistan.
Pakistanlawyers.org is a website targeted not only at lawyers and intellectuals but also to law students, those interested in law, and people in common.
The main objectives of Pakistanlawyers.org can be classified into the following broad goals:
The objectives of Pakistanlawyers.org can be well understood if we understand the background and analyze the difficulties lawyers and the general public are facing.
Generally, the common people of Pakistan are unaware and ignorant of various laws enforced. There are common misconceptions about laws and law-enforcing agencies. Sometimes innocent people do what is termed as grave wrong just because of a lack of knowledge. The general impression of law is very vague and, in many cases, the concept is totally opposite to what the law actually is. Law develops as society evolves. Awareness of law among the members of society is, therefore, the main factor for the development of society.
People are deceived because of unawareness of law. People do not access government authorities or the courts because of not being aware of the laws.
On the other hand, Pakistani Lawyers are, in general, unaware of the use of information technology. Computers are restricted for the use of word processors. Email addresses are acquired but never used. A few belonging to this noble profession are, to an extent, aware of the merits of information technology. The aim of Pakistanlawyers.org is to attract lawyers to adopt information technology and to take advantage of this wonderful technology. We at Pakistanlawyers.org are endeavoring hard to cause lawyers to combine law and technology together for the benefit of the whole community as well as for the system.
