Team – CTL Pakistan

The team at Courting The Law (CTL) comprises of young professionals driven by a common desire to help improve the legal system in Pakistan. The initiative was conceived and developed by an international lawyer, Taimur Malik, and is finding new supporters every day.

We are committed to undertaking steps to increase access to justice by disseminating useful legal information through new technologies as well as traditional media platforms. This is a team effort and we could not have achieved the objectives of increasing awareness, transparency and accountability in the legal profession without the support of a large number of legal professionals.

We hope that this initiative and the team behind it will continue to grow and include professionals from all corners of Pakistan and all segments of our society.

We are a small but committed team and each member brings different perspectives, skills and ideas to the table. Our full-time team includes technology law experts, a Millennium Leadership Fellow of the Atlantic Council, a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum, former Members of Youth Parliament Pakistan, a gold medalist from Punjab University Law College, MBA graduate from Oxford, LLM graduates from the University of Cambridge, London School of Economics and Queen Mary and a Barrister of the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn.

Our experienced contributors and eminent guest columnists are also an invaluable part of our larger team and without them this initiative would not have been possible.

Note: If you are a lawyer with 2-5 years of experience and would like to engage with us on any of our initiatives, please send your CV to [email protected]
