KIU, Main Campus- KIU law school boasts of producing some of the best brains in Uganda including the current speaker of the Parliament of Uganda. Allan Ntanzi Kiwalabye wants to inspire more of his colleagues to emulate Rt Hon. Anita Amongi.
Ntanzi who is running for president of the KIU Law Society wants to see the KIU School of Law set standards that are unmatched in Uganda.
"First of all, I want to assure my learning friends that we are the best and KIU being a top University in the Country, there is a need for us to live to the same standards," he says.
" I possess overwhelming love for this University, the school of law and the law society. I have a dream that we can become indispensable, we only need to work together. As such, I want to call upon my learning friends to take the leading line of exploring the heights." he adds.
He also wants to promote top-notch performance in the school of law by activating discussion groups. He is confident that discussion groups can do wonders once they are well empowered
"We shall have discussion groups engage in debate galas centred on different course units. The best discussion groups in the semester shall be awarded accordingly," he notes.
"We hope this will enable everyone to pass with flying colours," he added.
Ntanzi is also looking at making moots more vibrant than ever. His argument is that much as moots have been in existence, they are yet to be appreciated by every student of law.
"I want to appreciate the fact that the school has been having moots and I want to thank the coordinators for keeping our moot Court vibrant."
"However I understand not everyone in the school of law knows about moots and also the fact that the competitions have not happened for the past one year is another worry."
"The main problem has been facilitating some of these activities. I have coined a sustainable fundraising mechanism which I think can help us to pull some resources. Part of it is leveraging partnerships,” Ntanzi concluded.
Ntanzi like all the other potential aspirants for the top office at the KIU Law Society will look to better Areeba Jonathan who has been at the helm for the last one year, once given the mandate
