Denning Law School is a place that promotes both academics as well as community welfare. For us, a successful lawyer is one who has both a comprehensive knowledge of the law as well as great interpersonal skills; which is why, at Denning, we place great importance in giving our students not only the skills that they will need to succeed in their careers but also the compassion to help the less privileged factions of our society.
Denning Public Services, Denning Law School’s Welfare Society, aims to play a role in addressing social problems. In 2016, Pakistan’s first Multi-Dimensional Poverty Index Report declared that nearly 39% Pakistanis live in multidimensional poverty. Multidimensional poverty encompasses poor health, lack of education, inadequate living standards, disempowerment, poor quality of work, the threat of violence, and living in areas that are environmentally hazardous.
Denning Public Services encourages students to think of the other half and come up with short term and long-term solutions to their socio-economic problems. Students will collaborate with social welfare organizations and get to experience the day to day struggles of the working class.
