General information

The School of Law has since evolved from what started as a Department of Law under Faculty of Social Sciences in 1968, the School has sought to provide quality education in study of Law and Legal Sciences, and to promote the development of a well-rounded scholar and advocate. Over the thirty years of its existence, the School has expanded tremendously. While the fast graduating class (1968-71) was made up of 17 male students and 6 women, the Class of 1997- 2001 boasts a total of nearly 300, with a female enrollment of nearly 40 percent Whereas the Faculty opened with only 6 teachers, today it is made up of a teaching staff of over thirty, comprising 24 men and 8 women. All of them are Ugandan academics who have distinguished themselves m their respective disciplines. Commencing as a department in the faculty of Social Sciences, today the Faculty is divided into four departments, viz., Law & Jurisprudence, Commercial Law, Public and Comparative Law and the Human Rights & Peace Centre (HURIPEC). The education offered by the Faculty today is extremely diverse. Not only is the regular (day) program growing from strength to strength, but in 1993 the Faculty pioneered the introduction of Evening classes - a practice that was quickly emulated throughout the university campus- Postgraduate degrees are currently offered at the Masters (LL-M) and Doctorate (LL-D) level, and both are attracting a considerable clientele. The SCHOOL OF LAW is poised to enter the 21st Century as a trail-blazer in the arena of legal teaching scholarship and practice, providing personnel for traditional law practice, non-governmental service, international diplomacy and academia. Not only has it strengthened the traditional areas of teaching such as Legal methods, Land law and Civil Procedure, but it is introducing new areas that meet the challenges of the new millennium, such as Legal informatics, Gender and the Law, and Clinical Legal Education. All these developments have projected the Faculty back into the international arena, drawing student applications from within the Greater Eastern Africa region, and further afield. THE SCHOOL OF LAW IN GENERAL Makerere University has served as the traditional seat of academic excellence in English speaking Africa. The SCHOOL OF LAW has opened its doors to students since 1968 and expanded to a current student body of over 650 students and 30 distinguished faculties. The SCHOOL OF LAW has continuously adapted itself to suit diverse student needs in a rapidly changing and growing regional economy. Makerere SCHOOL OF LAW continues, each year, to attract some of the nation's best and maintains a diverse student body with a greater degree of gender balance than any other professional school on the campus. At the undergraduate level, the SCHOOL OF LAW offers the 4-year undergraduate Bachelor of Laws (LLB.) degree. This course is conducted simultaneously in the Full-time Day program and Evening Program. Each of the two is specially suited for a different class of student, the latter being tailored to professionals who want to deepen their knowledge of law- or are called to the legal profession later in fife and is exclusively available to self-sponsored students. The extension of the course to four years was intended to both broaden and deepen the students' grasp of legal concepts and their relationship to other disciplines. It also gives a much wider choice of subjects, particularly in the final year of study. At the graduate level, the SCHOOL OF LAW offers the 2-year Master of Laws (LL.M) degree and the Doctor of Laws (LL.D.). At the Master's level, there is no specialization but the student has the choice to tailor his/her academic and professional needs according to their interests. The Doctor of Laws generally follows the Doctor of Philosophy structure and is similar in academic rigor.
