Dean’s Message

MESSAGE FROM DEAN
FACULTY OF LAW
Prof. Dr. Qammaruddin Bohra
Former Judge High Court of Sindh & DG

No one can deny the importance of education. “The Holy Prophet (PBUH) had enjoined his followers to go even to China in the pursuit of knowledge”. The founder of this country Quid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah said in All Pakistan Educational Conference held on 27th November, 1947 at Karachi “Without education it is complete darkness and with education it is light. Education is a matter of life and death to our nation. The world is moving so fast that if you do not educate yourselves you will be not only completely left behind, but will be finished up…”

The name Hamdard however acquired a still wider meaning, when Shaheed Hakim Muhammad Said founded Hamdard University in 1992. The establishment of a University which could enliven the intellectual traditions of the educational institutions of the Golden Era of Muslim Civilization had always been his most cherished dream.

The study and professional of law is as old as human civilization. In fact, the Jewish Holy Book i.e. “Torah” is perhaps the first compilation of laws known to mankind. Thereafter, the Romans enacted their laws followed by the European nations. This amply demonstrates that unless and until there is a rule of law neither can society develop in an organized civilized manner nor prosper. The Hamdard University established School of Law in 2001 and started imparting Law education at their city campus in the mid of the city to facilitated to the students of the law.

The educational programs aim to equip student with comprehensive knowledge and professional skills and developing enthusiasm for research legal issues. The Faculty of Law, Hamdard University is therefore, committed professionalism and competence in legal studies effective in national and international context. Our main role is to develop our students in the qualities of devotion, love, determination and service to humanity. The Faculty of Law tries its best to make sure that students acquire knowledge and skills so that they can make the best use of this, not only a degree. It gives me immense pleasures and pride to inform that this faculty in short span of 13 years have contributed towards the District Judiciary of Sindh, Baluchistan and Islamabad by providing 30 Judges who are at present performing their responsibilities in different cadre.

I wish each and every student of this institute excel and achieve the very best in every walk of life. Dear students, always remember that there is no short cut to the success, only hard work, passion and devotion can bring success at your door step so be hard working, use your passion and devote yourself fully towards your goal. May Almighty ALLAH bless you all.
