Our colleague Bill Holohan of Holohan Lane, Ireland, has begun working with the Pakistan branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators to develop proposals to address the huge backlog of cases in Pakistan's courts. The reduction would be through alternative dispute resolution systems.
Mr Holohan told Irish Legal News: “If every case currently in the Indian court system continued all the way to the Indian Supreme Court, it will take 25 to 30 years to clear the backlog. There are similar problems in the Pakistani courts with around 2.2 million cases currently pending, and the backlog growing daily. I’m looking forward to helping in any way I can.”
