Department of Training

The Academy seeks to promote Islamic legal philosophy and orientation in Islamic Law including the Islamic concept of Justice through the training of judges, attorneys, prosecutors, legal professionals, etc. who collectively operate our judicial system. It aims at preparing the judicial and extra-judicial cadres through Trainings and workshops to reflect the aspirations of the people and constitutional imperatives for Pakistan towards the Islamisation of laws and the society as well as the enforcement of the rule of Shariah in accordance with the commandments of the Quran and Sunnah. The Academy also extends its training programs to develop expertise to other friendly countries and coordinates exchange of training facilities.
