The demand for legal services in Uganda far exceeds the supply, and yet access to professional lawyers is often hindered by the high legal fees and the fact that most lawyers are concentrated in urban areas. Paralegals can help fill the current gap in the need for legal services and add value to other sectors where knowledge of the law would enhance performance.
The Master of Laws (LL.M) is a two-year postgraduate taught degree programme with a compulsory dissertation in semester four. The Programme exposes students to new legal perspectives, deep and comparative analyses with the opportunity to specialise by choosing related courses in one of three specialisations namely Natural Resources Law, International Commercial Law, ‘Human Rights, Governance and Development’, and a unique course offering on Forensic Justice and Criminology.
The rule of law keeps the world from tearing apart at its seams, and that means our legal brethren have a huge responsibility. They are the defenders of constitutions, the champions of the abused, the warriors of our modern way of life. Join the ranks of our dear learned friends at Cavendish University Uganda.
