I am a Lawyer and Development Sector Professional having more than 12 Years of Experience. I am interested in what is happening around the globe in the field of strengthening Rule of Law and provision of Access to Justice to the most vulnerable groups. I have currently running a free legal aid center in Multan namely "Dastageer Justice Forum Multan" where legal services are provided free of cost. We have six lawyers including two female lawyers at our panel who provide their services as pro-bono. We are managing operational cost from charity by local philanthropists and annual membership fee of the forum's members.
