ISLAMABAD - Continued self-education and training is indispensable to honing the skills of lawyers in the emerging areas of practice and to their social relevance in this rapidly changing world.

Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed, a judge of Supreme Court, expressed these views in the concluding ceremony of a one-week training course on "Legal Education" for lawyers from High Court Bar Association, Rawalpindi, here at the Federal Judicial Academy.

He said that the system needed to be upgraded to address the problems of the 21st century and since law and knowledge change with the time, therefore, those lawyers who lag behind to acquire the latest and updated knowledge would suffer badly in the long run.

Regarding the continuous training for lawyers, he said, "Bench and Bar are integral to each other. Our legal and judicial system is incomplete if we minus advocates.

This coordinated effort of the Academy to arrange one-week course on very important topic, "Legal Education and Art of Advocacy" would have ignited the imagination of a large number of young lawyers."
