Memorandum on Protections Under International Law for Statements Concerning Allegations of Corruption by Public Officials
President Silkenat expresses concern about violence against lawyers. “The American Bar Association is deeply concerned about violence against lawyers in Pakistan. Any fair justice system relies on those accused of crimes having access to counsel and the opportunity to offer a full defense in an impartial court. The rule of law is imperiled when lawyers are subject to intimidation and violence for representing their clients." James R. Silkenat, President of the American Bar Association.
