We will start with a lecture by Justice(R) Dr. Ghous Mohammad on Article 184(3) of the Constitution of Pakistan (Fundamental Rights) – Its jurisdiction and benefits for civil society. This article is of utmost significance to all citizens of Pakistan, as it provides a clear pathway for the Supreme Court to respond to petitions about Fundamental citizenry rights. Dr. Ghous will first talk about the different legal dimensions of Article 184(3). This will be followed by three case studies to elucidate these concepts and give participants a chance to understand how legal interpretations work.
