Work with judges, LAZ advised

By BRIAN HATYOKA –
FORMER Chief Justice Matthew Ngulube has urged the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) to work closely with judges to resolve delays in the administration of justice and delivery of judgments.
Mr Justice Ngulube said the bench and the lawyers should work together ‘quietly’ in a shared resolve to confront the problem of delays in the justice system.

He was speaking in Livingstone on Saturday night when he officiated at the LAZ gala dinner at Zambezi Sun Hotel.
The LAZ gala dinner marked the end of a three-day annual conference which was held under the theme ‘Enhancing the Practice of Law through Continuous Professional Development (CPD).’
“Since 1988, LAZ and the Judiciary have been making efforts to address the subject of delays in the administration of justice but I understand that delays are still a problem even today.
