By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU Main Campus-Enock Otim, the Head of department public and comparative law at KIU school of law has encouraged law students to uphold practical activities like mooting. Speaking during a constitutional moot competition on Friday evening, Otim said that it is through such activities that students get exposed to how things run outside Campus.

Otim was the guest of honor and witnessed as members of Kanyeihamba and Co-advocates faced off in a closely contested moot trial on Friday. He was indeed mesmerized that he had less to say when it came to his time to speak.

"I want to thank the leadership of Kanyeihamba and Co-advocates for this organization. You people are doing a wonderful job and to the participants, don't take this for granted, it is very important for our future in legal practice. Let's keep the bar high," he said.

The event was graced by a panel of highly respected judges with enormous experience and knowledge of constitutional law. It was a composition of former excellent students and lecturers.

Former President, KIU law society, Moses Osiya Kayz who is also the former managing partner of Kanyeihamba and company advocates was also in attendance. In his message to Students, Osiya encouraged the spirit of mooting and fruitful leadership.

Nicholas Agaba, the managing partner Kanyeihamba &co advocates thanked all the participants among whom included, students, stakeholders, and University administration for their unmatched commitment towards the law firm's activities.

Friday's moot was also attended by Students from Victoria University led by the University's prime Minister only identified as Carter and the president of Victoria University law society.
