Pakistan attacks the rule of law and beats on lawyers who were attempting to peacefully protest for the most fundamental rights available to human beings.  Every lawyer in the world feels the pain of every brutal blow of the oppressing regime’s batons on our profession.  This is not a political blog but it is about the legal profession and there is no more important issue than the role lawyers play in maintaining the rule of law.  This is a devastating day for every lawyer.
