What exactly East Law does?
Eastlaw.pk provides a platform for legal research. It is an E-Library containing the most extensive databank of legal documents in Pakistan.
How did you come up with the idea?
Legal education in Pakistan is going through an academic draught due to a lack of education material availability. Comparative jurisdiction of laws like India, Bangladesh, the UK, etc. have similar, more developed, and advanced research resources for their respective legal communities. This gave us to create East Law.
