About Us




PakArbitrationLaw (“PAL”) has been established as an online knowledge-sharing platform, solely focused on promoting the understanding and awareness of arbitration in Pakistan.

PAL aims to develop a strong network of practitioners who are motivated to develop international arbitration in Pakistan, and is directed towards young lawyers and students, whether based within or outside Pakistan. The idea is to exchange views and knowledge on international and Pakistani arbitration.

Presently, the emphasis will be on sharing publications on relevant issues of international and domestic arbitration, as well as engaging in dialogue through our online discussion forum. Young practitioners and law students are, therefore, asked to restrict their submissions to arbitration-related topics only. Professionals from other backgrounds are also welcome to participate. 

PAL’s dedicated team is excited to embark on this small venture and hopes that it can attract the interest of young lawyers and students.
