Lawyers Stand Together

New York lawyers came together this week to rally in support of legal professionals in Pakistan, who have taken a stand against General Pervez Musharraf and his declaration of a state of emergency. Lawyers from several bars in the city, including the New York City Bar Association, the New York Women’s Bar, and the Muslim Bar of New York, joined the rally in front of the New York Supreme Court building. The New York City Bar also presented a statement, signed by its President Barry M. Kamins, that condemns the marshal law in Pakistan and pledges support to the lawyers and judges standing up for the rule of law in Pakistan.
