Regent Law’s Uganda Study Abroad Program is for students who seek to do global justice through an informed relationship with the people and legal challenges of East Africa.
The program is based in Mukono, Uganda, which provides a rich learning environment for students who are passionate about global justice and are interested in East African legal issues. In Uganda, fighting against corruption and for the rule of law are vital, as are struggles for the human rights and legal empowerment of the Ugandan people.
Students will live and study at Uganda Christian University in Mukono and will participate in educational trips to the nearby capital city of Kampala. International legal experiences include visits to the International Justice Mission branch office, the Uganda Supreme Court and Constitutional Court, the International Crimes Division of the High Court of Uganda, the Uganda Human Rights Commission and Human Rights Tribunal, and a local justice experience in Mukono. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in recreational activities such as a safari and rafting on the Nile River.
Students from any law school may enroll. Regent’s Uganda program is approved by the American Bar Association and offers fully-accredited courses. This program provides students with an unparalleled opportunity to study international human rights and the rule of law issues in the African context.
