Legal Essay Writing Competition, 2016

The Aitchison College Law Society conducted second edition of the Legal Essay Writing Competition on Monday i.e. 26th of September, 2016. The event was a highly successful one with more than sixty students participating. It was not an Inter-House event still, good participation was noted from all the houses at Senior School. Most of the students had come well prepared and the quality of essays on offer was exceptional.

The purpose of this event was to generate interest in the subject of Law, especially amongst O' level students. Thus, the topics set, were of a generalized nature and required very limited legal knowledge. The fact that this event was successful in achieving its purpose can be judged from the fact that most of the students participating were from M2, C1 and C2.

Ali Uzair Bhandari, a student of H2 and President of the Aitchison College Law Society, assisted the staff advisor as the organizer of the event.

The topics of the event were as follows:

  1. Capital punishment; yea or nay?
  2. Does the current law on honor killings in Pakistan do justice to the victims? If not, discuss ways in which it can be amended.
  3. Rule of law v. Rule by Clergy: Comment
  4. Impact of Cyber-crime laws on fundamental rights in Pakistan
