The Relevance (Why the course is being taught)

The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) Program at Uganda Christian University (UCU) is an interdisciplinary program that integrates the natural and social sciences to generate and apply new knowledge about the quality of our justice system.
The Faculty of Law desires to produce men and women, who will later become model lawyers in society. It is not only lawyers who know how and where to find the law, but rather lawyers with a difference, that is lawyers of integrity and scruples. These are people who appreciate the role of law in bringing about justice as intended by God. (Source: Uganda Christian University, School of Law website)
