Lahore: The Punjab University shall constitute a central
committee to ensure implementation of legal education reforms approved
by the Board of Studies in Law. The reforms will be applicable to all
law colleges affiliated with the varsity.

education reforms approved by the Board of Studies in Law.
meeting decided that each college would constitute a committee to ensure
smooth implementation of the selection board's recommendations.
Malik called for changing the pattern of question papers which,
according to him, are at present normally set in a stereotype manner.
recommended that question papers should be problem-oriented so that a
problem or case is solved by students citing relevant legal provisions.

developments in the domain of law and legal decisions. The students
should be introduced to research methodology and method of finding the
laws as well as understanding the case law to help develop their skills
of legal drafting, he added.
At this, the meeting decided that
the pattern of question papers for all the students of LLB part-I, II
& III, from now onwards, shall be slightly changed and one question
in each paper shall consist of a problem to be attempted/solved by the

KEMU dept lacks equipment
Lahore: Pathology department of the King Edward Medical
University (KEMU), one of the premium varsities of the country, is
lacking vital equipment and infrastructural facilities to conduct
various tests and educational training of the postgraduate students.
The department is currently housing four sections, including
histopathology, hematology, microbiology and chemical pathology under
one roof. A large number of laboratory investigations, both specialised
and routine, were carried out in the department for patient care as well
as educational purposes.
Sources said that out of the
four, two sections – chemical pathology and microbiology laboratory -
are not recognised yet by the College of Physicians and Surgeons
Pakistan (CPSP) for FCPS training despite the fact that the department
is one of the oldest and the largest among those of other medical
The university, which is also known for its high
number of medical students and patients (visiting its teaching
institute, Mayo Hospital), was not imparting FCPS training to its
doctors and medical students in the disciplines of chemical pathology
and microbiology for years.
There are two automated chemistry
analysers installed in the chemical section of the pathology department
which have been lying out of order for the last one-year and even
routine tests of blood urea, serum creatinine, LFT's (Liver Function
Test) are being done manually with dubious accuracy and authenticity.
The sources said the purchase committee had reportedly refused to
recommend these two machines some five years back giving justification
that the company manufacturing the equipment was not reliable. The
automated chemistry analysers still had two years' warranty but the
company technicians were not visiting the department to repair the
equipment despite several written complaints, they added.
KEMU department, in separate letters to the varsity vice-chancellor and
the Punjab health department, has sought that the company be declared
blacklisted for not responding to its complaints. However, the health
department has taken no action yet. In the absence of test facility at
the KEMU department, the patients were either being referred to the Mayo
Hospital's already overburdened central lab or the private laboratories
charging exorbitant fees.
The chemical pathology section also
lacks equipment for arterial blood gasses (ABG's) determination, which
is a very vital test to manage critical patients of renal failure,
patients on ventilators and also those affected by various sorts of
The department is also without automated immune
analyser, the equipment required to determine level of various hormones
like estrogen, progesterone, rennin, aldosterone, thyroid hormones etc.
Similarly, another machine which is required for measuring serum
electrolyte levels in the blood is also not there in the department and
patients are forced to visit private laboratories for these tests. The
equipment is used to carry out tests of patients with kidney failure,
diarrhea and cholera, besides for post-operative and pre-operative
surgical management etc.
In the past when the chemical
pathology section was fully functional, more than a million tests,
including those of blood sugar, LFT, cardiac enzymes, electrolytes,
lipids profile and HCV ELISA, were annually conducted there, the sources
Besides, the three generators which are supposed to
provide electricity to the pathology department during long spells of
loadshedding have been lying out of order for the last several months,
badly affecting the lab services.
KEMU pathology department
head Prof Dr Muhammad Munir said that the department was catering to the
needs of a large number of patients visiting the Mayo Hospital,
especially the outdoor patients.
About department's two
sections which are yet to be recognised by the CPSP, Dr Munir said
efforts were under way and the department was trying to equip these
sections with new equipment to meet the criteria.
To a question
about the missing equipment, he said recommendations were being
forwarded to the authorities concerned to purchase these machines. About
three non-functional generators, Dr Munir said the institute's
administration has been asked to get them repaired. Dawn

'MD, MS programmes never ended in UHS'
Lahore: University of Health Sciences (UHS) Lahore has neither
terminated any academic programme nor there in any proposal to do away
with age-old Masters of Surgery (MS), Doctor of Medicine (MD) and
Masters of Dental Surgery (MDS) programmes, said spokesman of the
varsity on Saturday.
He said that the notion given by some people in
this regard is absolutely wrong. MD, MS and MDS programmes are designed
for professionals who intend to pursue clinical practice and want to
develop research skills in related areas. UHS has received some
proposals from some senior professors to change the admission criteria
in order to revitalise these programmes.
However, these proposals
are yet to be discussed in and approved by relevant statutory bodies of
the university. UHS has no intention, whatsoever, to terminate any of
its programmes.The nation
