The Faculty of Law is dedicated to providing instruction to students in the legal field and develop a hub of legal scholarship and research facilities for students, academics and researchers from Uganda, East Africa, and beyond.

Our academic staff work as a team and are dedicated to assisting our students achieve their academic goals. Each member of our staff has defined job responsibilities as well as the responsibility to assist each other and our students with assistance and support to ensure each student has a positive experience at our faculty. Our staff are well trained and are truly dedicated to develop and improve university- based teaching in law and closely related subjects and undertake legal research in various areas of interest to the law faculty and the entire Uganda Christian University (UCU).

Our staff has an overwhelming number of years of experience and training. We realize obtaining university degrees can be a challenging experience and we want to be a resource for our students.. At the end of each semester, we do ask for your feedback by providing you with a survey at check-in that you may complete and place in a locked box at check-out to help us improve our service to the students. Our staff are our greatest asset- we say it often and with good reason. It is only with the determination and dedication of our staff that we can serve the students, generate long-term value for them and contribute to the broader public.
