KIU, Main Campus-On Friday 7th September 2022, law students at KIU will gather at their iconic moot court to witness members of Kanyeihamba and Co.Advocates face off in a long-awaited constitutional moot competition, the first of a kind at Uganda's leading Private University.
Nicholus Agaba, the managing partner of Kanyeihamba and Company Advocates, a student firm, is very confident that Friday's competition will greatly benefit the members.
"I understand that students need the closest courtroom experience to enable them to prepare for the near future and then build their litigation career," Agaba said.
The theme of this moot is “To Deny people their Human Rights is to Challenge their very Humanity”, a challenge for law students to solve.
Moot competitions are known to give students a courtroom experience and such competitions have helped groom a number of advocates who are now actively serving in the country.
Kanyeihamba's competition is the first this semester and it is hoped that many are in the pipeline as build up to the grand inter-law firm competition.
At KIU, Kanyeihamba and Co.advocates is one of the highly respected firm and will seek to cement its reputation with an extraordinary organization of Friday's moot competition which is expected to attract a huge attendance.
