KAMPALA - The Chief Justice Hon. Justice Bart Katurebe this morning officially opened a new auditorium at the Law Development Centre. Present at this function were stakeholders from the Justice, Law and Order Sector and development partners led by the Netherlands Ambassador to Uganda. H.E Henk Jan Bakker. 

The idea of an auditorium at LDC was hatched in the 2007/2008 financial year. Construction was funded by the Government of Uganda with support from the JLOS development partners. The auditorium can accommodate up to one thousand (1000) people and is set to contribute to legal education by providing space for general lectures, guest speakers, moot competitions and generating money from external users who will pay for space (Hiring this new facility costs 6m per day). The ultramodern auditorium at LDC is equipped with modern seats, public address system and is air-conditioned.

The Honorable Chief justice at the same event also launched three volumes of the Uganda Law Reports for the years 2010, 2011 and 2012. These are important legal tools, which provide precedents to judges at the bench and Lawyers at the Bar.  The law reports are also helpful to law students and legal researchers.
