The Premier made the remarks on Friday while presiding over the 41st graduation ceremony and official opening of the auditorium at the Uganda Law development Centre in Kampala.

Mbabazi hailed LDC for excelling academically in the legal profession, adding that LDC has succeeded because of good leadership.

“LDC has produced the finest lawyers in the country and indeed the entire East African region who have gone on to excel in service of their profession and their country,” Mbabazi said.

505 students graduated with diplomas in Human rights, Law and Legal practice of the Law development Centre.

Mbabazi thanked LDC for constructing the 1,000 seater auditorium to keep up with the demand for its services adding that LDC should invest more in infrastructure and also consider decentralizing its services at regional training centres.

He however, cautioned LDC to guard against unjustified failure of students, adding that the steps taken to address this challenge by reviewing rules of passing the Bar Course and the curriculum are welcome.

“Students who fail the Bar Course should do so genuinely rather than as a result of internal weaknesses at LDC,” said Mbabazi.

The Premier said LDC should also consider training in the new emerging areas of law such as oil and gas, environment and intellectual property, in addition to continuing legal education for advocates.

Other speakers who included the Attorney General Peter Nyombi, Chairperson LDC Management Lady Justice Christine Kitumba and Uganda Law Society President Ruth Sebatindira urged the graduates to be God fearing, honest, hardworking and patriotic.

Nambatya Prosscovia was the best overall student on the post graduate Bar Course and also in commercial transactions paper and she received the Chief Justice Prize and LDC/Agaba Muhairwe prize.
