Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Gulzar Ahmed has said that bench and bar are the part of the system of administration of justice. 

This was stated by him while speaking during meeting with a 14-member delegation of Islamabad High Court Bar Association, headed by its President Ch. Haseeb Muhammad and comprising office bears which called on the Chief Justice in Supreme Court Islamabad on Wednesday.

The CJP said, without able assistance of legal fraternity, the task of dispensation of justice cannot be materialised and the lawyers’ image as most learned members of the society should not be allowed to be tarnished due to irresponsible conduct of some individual lawyers.

The delegation discussed issue of mutual interest regarding the legal profession. The CJP shared his experience and views with them. They thanked the chief justice for taking out time from his busy schedule for them and invited him to visit Islamabad High Court Bar Association.
