President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

I bring you warm greetings from the Executive Council and Staff of the Uganda Law Society (ULS).

The period  from January to April 2019 was inundated with several activities, events and engagements which included strengthening ties and relations with various stakeholders. During this past quarter, the ULS had the 3rd Annual Law Conference on April 4th and 5th, 2019 under the theme “The Future of the Legal Profession; Unpacking Opportunities and Challenges” which was followed up by the Pre-AGM and AGM that took place at Imperial Resort Beach Entebbe on the 5th and 6th April respectively.

As the national bar association which is mandated to uphold the Rule of Law, the ULS through the Rule of Law department launched the first quarterly ULS Rule of Law Report of 2019, on April 11, 2019 at Kampala Serena Hotel. The ULS also continued to contribute policy processes by making submissions on pending Bills to Parliament.

I am also proud to note that the ULS through the Legal Aid Project continued to provide legal services to the vulnerable and marginalized communities. In this regard, I am particularly pleased to note that with the support of UN Women, the Government of Sweden and the EU-UN spotlight initiative to the Elimination of Violence against Women and Girls, the ULS is launching new Legal Aid Clinics in Kitgum, Padar, Kaberamaido, Abim, Nakapiripirit, Gulu and Soroti.

During this review period, I am pleased to note that the ULS has engaged itself in meaningful partnerships and relationships with several stakeholders to enhance its brand. In this regard, the ULS in partnership with CEPIL launched the young Lawyers’ Mentorship Program on March 3, 2019 to harness the knowledge and wisdom from more experienced lawyers on how best they can succeed in the legal profession. Furthermore, in partnership with the Uganda Bankers’ Association, the ULS launched the International Centre for Arbitration and Mediation in Kampala (ICAMEK) on April 25, 2019 as a platform the will offer world class domestic and international arbitration as well as mediation services.

In conclusion, I am grateful for the support of the entire Executive Council, our donors and partners who have continuously supported us every step of the way during the first quarter as well as the able efforts of the Secretariat under the leadership of the Chief Executive Officer. Finally, and most importantly I would like to congratulate and thank you our dear membership for a successful and prosperous first quarter of 2019.

For God and my country.

Yours Sincerely,
