The idea of having a reference book for the Judges of District Judiciary, containing correct and up-to-date case law, to help them in their day to day working was conceived by the then Honorable Chief Justice Mr. Justice Muhammad Qasim Khan. The lordship chose LHCRC for the task, and directed it to prepare ‘’Civil and Criminal Law Citators’. Within a short span of 3 months, LHCRC compiled the ‘Civil Law Citator’ & ‘Criminal Law Citator’, which were published by the Punjab Judicial Academy, Lahore.
Inauguration ceremony of the Citators was held on June 05, 2021, at the Punjab Judicial Academy, Lahore. Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mr. Justice Gulzar Ahmad along with Hon’ble Chief Justice Punjab Mr. Justice Muhammad Qasim Khan and the then Hon’ble Senior Puisne Judge Lahore High Court, Lahore Mr. Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti (the incumbent Chief Justice Punjab) inaugurated the Citators and appreciated the initiative of compiling these reference books. The Citators will be periodically updated and will continue to play a vital part in improving the quality of legal decisions by the judges of District Judiciary.
