The Judges Parliamentary Committee meeting approved the name of Justice Aalia Neelam for the post of Lahore High Court chief justice.

According to sources, Justice Aalia Neelam will take oath as the LHC chief justice tomorrow after the notification.

Justice Aalia Neelum is set to make history as the first woman to rise to the position after the Judicial Commission of Pakistan (JCP) unanimously approved her elevation last week.

The JCP, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa, approved her elevation after considering the nominations of three judges for the position of LHC chief justice, including acting chief justice Shujaat Ali Khan and Justice Ali Baqar Najafi.

The office of LHC chief justice became vacant after the elevation of Justice Malik Shahzad Ahmad Khan to the Supreme Court on June 7, following which Justice Shujaat Ali Khan was appointed as acting chief justice of the LHC.

Reportedly Justice Aalia Neelum stands third in the seniority list of judges of the LHC.

Justice Aalia Neelum, born on Nov 12, 1966, earned her LLB degree from the University of Punjab in 1995 and was enrolled as an advocate in 1996. She was later enrolled as an advocate of the Supreme Court in 2008 and elevated to the Lahore High Court in 2013.
