Our first Insaaf Camp was held on 25th March, 2017 in collaboration with NAYMET Trust at Walton, Lahore. More than a hundred people, predominantly female, attended the camp and received free legal awareness and advice from professional lawyers.
Advocate Zahida Sadiq, Advocate Sohail Afzal Khan, Advocate Izzat Fatima and Advocate Asma Riaz Bhullar volunteered their time and expertise for this cause, while Mr. Tahir Latif and Mr. Humayun Shuja from NAYMET Trust also played an instrumental role in the management of the camp. Mr. Taimur Malik, Ms. Anoosha Shaigan and Mr. Farhan Shafi from CourtingTheLaw were also present.
The camp started off with a recitation of the Holy Quran followed by an interactive session led by Advocate Zahida Sadiq, where she talked about and answered questions related to the common issues faced by women in the society.
After this session the lawyers were available in a separate room for people to ask questions in a confidential manner. Meanwhile, Mr. Taimur Malik and Ms. Anoosha Shaigan also spoke to the audience about the philosophy behind CourtingTheLaw and CTL’s various initiatives.
The feedback from the attendees was positive. CTL Insaaf Camp is a step towards proper legal aid provision, the rationale behind which is to create awareness regarding the law via freely available flow of legal information. We aim to have Insaaf Camps taking place simultaneously in locations with large underprivileged communities.
