Ayesha’s studies from Harvard University
Justice Ayesha Malik did her LLM from Harvard Law School. In 2012, he was appointed as a judge in the Lahore High Court. Prior to that she was working in a leading corporate and commercial law firm. During her promotion, she was the first woman judge of the Lahore High Court in the last 20 years.

Delivered important decisions on constitutional issues
Ayesha Malik is known for her discipline and integrity. He has ruled on many important constitutional issues. Including declaration of assets in elections, payments to sugarcane growers and implementation of international arbitration in Pakistan. Lahore High Court judge Ayesha Malik may become the first woman judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan. A high powered committee has approved his promotion. After this, Pakistan moved closer to the appointment of the first woman judge of the Supreme Court.

Only formality left to become history
Dawn newspaper quoted sources as saying that the Judicial Commission of Pakistan (JCP) headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed approved the promotion of Justice Ayesha Malik by a majority of five votes against four. Now after getting permission from JCP, his name will be considered in the parliamentary committee. Which usually does not go against the recommendation of JCP. This is the second time that the JCP met to decide on Justice Malik’s elevation. His name had cropped up for the first time on September 9 last year. Then there was opposition to the promotion of Ayesha Malik to the Supreme Court over the seniority order of High Court judges.
