The Principal School of Law Dr. Christopher Mbazira highlighted the activities lined up to commemorate the 50-year celebrations.  He said in light of the 50-year journey, it was imperative that something special be organized and hence the need to rally support from the very many alumni that dominate the legal sector in and outside the country and together, strategize for the next 50 years.

Dt. Mbazira explained that a lot has changed from 1968 when the program was started with only 17 students to the current number of 1500, the introduction of the evening classes and the highly experienced Faculty.  

The School of Law started in 1968 under the Faculty of Social Sciences.
