Honorable President, Dean of the Shepard Board Law Centre, Members of the faculty, respected students, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen:

It is an honor and a privilege for me to represent the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and to accept on his behalf, the Honorary Doctor of Laws degree conferred upon him by the Nova Southeastern University today.

As you are aware, Justice Chaudhry could not be here personally due to the complex and delicate situation of the judiciary in Pakistan.
