Based on an institutional and training needs assessment, the project enhanced the institutional capacity of the management staff and management committee (Board). It further provided training on content matters but also on pedagogical skills for the teaching staff of LDC. A number of staff followed LLM programmes in Europe.
The curriculum of the Bar Course (a one year post graduate course), the Diploma Course and short courses provided by LDC were upgraded and new courses on emerging trends in law were developed by staff with support from international experts. Research and law reporting was supported through training of staff of the research department on methodology and law reporting. The teaching infrastructure of LDC was modernised through the endowment with a computer lab, a new library and new teaching aids.
As a result of this project, the LDC improved its training services and was better appreciated by students and stakeholders in Uganda. In addition it was placed in a better position to improve other tasks and responsibilities derived from its mandate, such as legal research and legal aid.
