The Politics and Jurisprudence of the Chaudhry Court 2005-2013

Moeen H. Cheema and Ijaz S. Gilani

Former Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's tenure, from 2005 to 2013, has been characterized by remarkable developments in constitutional politics and the jurisprudence of the apex court. This was also a period of great controversy and the actions of the Chaudhry Court polarized the debate on the role of the Supreme Court. Despite the emergence of such vociferous debate, a detailed scrutiny of the Chaudhry Court's actions has thus far been lacking. This volume represents an attempt to fill this gap by closely analyzing the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court and reflects on the likely legacy of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's tenure.
