About EJI

Justice sector worldwide, in general, is plagued with delay hampering expeditious decisions; similar scenario prevails in Asia and Pakistan, in particular. It has dawned upon me, through my experience as a Judge, that delay in administering justice in the society can not be attributed solely to Judiciary, rather all the segments of the society have to work in tandem to deliver Expedicious and inexpensive justice. An effort was made in 2017, while I was posted as District & Sessions Judge Attock, to harmonize the working of the Criminal Courts for the end result of swift decisions. In fact, the idea was conceived by his Lordship Mr. Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, the then Honourable Judge Supreme Court of Pakistan; which was warmly welcomed by Mr. Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah, the then Honourable Chief Justice Lahore High Court, Lahore.

Model Criminal Trial Court

In order to improve service delivery by the justice sector in line with Principles of Policy outlined in the Constitution, Expeditious Justice Initiative (EJI) was approved by the National Judicial (Policy Making) Committee on 11.03.2019. It provides for establishment of “Model Criminal trial Court. 


Model Civil Appellate Court

Expanding the scope of the Initiative, it was felt that civil cases handled
by the court of first appeal at the district level also needs to be focused.  In
order to address this area, launch of Expeditious Justice Initiative-II has been
proposed within available resources.


Model Trial Magistrate Courts

Model Trial Magistrate Court is the third phase of the Initiative, which has emphasis on trial of cases before Magistrates. It conceptualizes bifurcation of Pre-trial and Trial Magistrates and provides strategy for establishment of Model Trial Magistrate Courts (MTMC) in each district.
