On Friday, 13 December 2019, SAHSOL hosted a reference for one of its longest-serving adjunct faculty members, Justice (R) Fazal Karim. Justice (R) Fazal Karim has a distinguished legal career, beginning as a civil judge in the 1960s and rising to the rank of a judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

SAHSOL is proud to have been associated with a distinguished academic and former Judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
