Message of the President

The time is right for self-evaluation: to assess where we are and where we want to go, to seek new ways to better meet the needs of our members and the profession, and to address the many issues confronting the public’s access to justice.

Dear Members of the Peshawar Bar Association,

I want to thank each and every PBA Member for the moving tribute of our Annual Election 2017. It is an honor and humbling to serve you as elected President for the 2017-2018 year.
To prepare to be your PBA President, I along with my team spoke with many past Presidents, senior members and rising up advocates including female colleagues of the Bar.

The best advice I received for this job came from all of them is; the job is what you make it. I gave this advice considerable thought. I reviewed everything I have learned and reached to the conclusion to concentrate on the hot and long awaited issues including provision of affordable facilities to the lawyers community and make these the priority for the PBA for the upcoming year. With your continued dedication, our commitment to and work in these areas will remain strong in 2017.

I look forward to working with you and to a great year!

Syed Taimoor Ali Shah
President, Peshawar Bar Association
