Pakistan Awami Lawyers Movement (PALM)

PALM, the Lawyers forum of the Tehreek, was established unanimously in the meeting of central Legislative assembly of Pakistan Awami Tehreek held on February 20, 1997. It was imperative for the Lawyers Forum to be erected for demands of Mustafavi revolution and for the prosperity and dissemination of its mission.

Prof Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri (LL.B, Ph.D, Ex-Professor of Punjab University Law College, Lahore) is its founder leader. The supremacy of Qur`anic system of law, propagation of awareness, protection of human rights, peace and prosperity in Pakistan and the protection of lawyers rights are some of its significant goals. It aims at a legal and constitutional war against law breakers, exploitative and hypocritic forces so that a society based on social, economic and political justice may be established that had been dreamt by Allama Iqbal and the Quaid-e-Azam. PALM is vigorously active for the progress, stability and prosperity of the nation and supremacy of law for without rule of law the dream of a real Islamic democratic and welfare Pakistan cannot be materialized.

The lawyer members of PALM are in constant contact with the lawyers and office bearers. They arrange special lecture of senior advocates for young lawyers. Furthermore, they are going ahead in arranging lectures of senior advocates to give awareness of national laws to common people.
