Dr. Ali Qazilbash, Chair, Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law (SAHSOL) delivered a lecture on 'Ethics and Values for Lawyers' at a seminar organised by the Supreme Court Bar Association at Avari Hotel, Lahore.

He urged the legal community to implement a code of conduct devised by the Pakistan Bar Council, in letter and spirit. He pointed out that the accountability of judges will not work unless the accountability of advocates is not ensured.
