Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Shahbaz Sharif, has introduced a groundbreaking digital website named ‘Pakistan Code‘. This website empowers citizens to easily explore federal laws, enhancing transparency and accessibility.
Named ‘Pakistan Code’, this legal search engine is accessible on the website and as an app on Android and Apple Store. The Android version is available, while the iOS version is being tested.
The goal behind ‘Pakistan Code Website’ (PCW) is to make legal information accessible to students, lawyers, researchers, and the public. It bridges the gap between complex legal texts and understandable insights.
When users visit the ‘Pakistan Code’ website or app, they find various law categories, including criminal, medical, and civil laws. It even showcases historical laws dating back to 1839, displaying its comprehensive coverage.
An outstanding feature is the integration of QR codes into federal laws, enhancing traceability of legal citations. This simplifies verification for legal professionals like lawyers and judges. The platform also includes watermarked, proofread, and reviewed laws, plus resources like the Constitution of Pakistan and Rules of Business.
Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif acknowledges the efforts of Federal Minister for Law Justice Senator Azam Nazir Tarar, Parliamentary Secretary Mehnaz Akbar Aziz, and Secretary Law Raja Naeem Akbar, hailing the launch as a historic step towards digitizing Pakistan’s legal system.
In summary, the ‘Pakistan Code’ marks a transformative era in legal accessibility and awareness. Providing an accessible interface to navigate over 943 Pakistani Federal Laws, it’s a significant stride towards transparency and legal education in Pakistan.
