The Cavendish University Law Journal (CULJ) was launched by Mr. Frank Nigel Othembi, the Executive Director of the Law Development Centre (LDC) in Uganda. In his remarks, Mr. Othembi noted that the Journal is a vital addition to scholarship in legal education.

The Cavendish Journal of Social Sciences and Management (CJSSM) was launched by Prof. Noah Midamba, a renowned Professor of Defence and Foreign Policy, who was also the Commencement Speaker at the 11th Graduation ceremony of the University.
