UNILAK continues to offer free legal aid to the vulnerable through its Faculty of Law

UNILAK’s Faculty of Law has been at the forefront of providing valuable legal aid services through its legal clinic program since 2006. With a vision to extend assistance to vulnerable individuals and those unable to afford the high costs associated with legal fees, the university has become a beacon of hope for those seeking justice in the community.

The legal clinic services are available across all three campuses of the University, ensuring accessibility for individuals residing in various parts of the region. Under the guidance and supervision of experienced faculty members, law students actively participate in offering their expertise and support to those in need.

The Dean of the Faculty of Law, Mr. Turyahebwa Robert, expressed his pride in the university’s commitment to providing free legal services to those who cannot afford legal representation.

He emphasized that the legal clinic operates twice a week, specifically on Mondays and Thursdays, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. During these designated hours, individuals seeking legal aid can visit the clinic without any formal procedure or the burden of paying for legal services.

The legal clinic offers a wide range of services to cater to the diverse legal needs of the community. These services encompass various areas of law, including civil, criminal, family, and property matters. Individuals visiting the clinic can receive guidance on legal procedures, assistance in drafting legal documents, and even representation in court if required.

Since its establishment, the UNILAK legal clinic has made a significant impact on the lives of countless individuals. By bridging the gap between those in need and the legal system, the clinic has ensured that justice is accessible to all, regardless of their financial constraints.

The UNILAK legal clinic not only benefits the community but also provides an invaluable learning experience for the law students involved. By actively participating in real-life cases, the students gain practical knowledge, develop essential legal skills, and cultivate a sense of social responsibility.

Looking towards the future, UNILAK remains committed to expanding and improving its legal clinic services. Plans are underway to collaborate with local organizations and legal practitioners to further enhance the range and effectiveness of the legal aid provided.


As UNILAK legal clinic continues its admirable work, it stands as a testament to the power of education, dedication, and the pursuit of justice. With its unwavering commitment to providing free legal aid to vulnerable individuals, the clinic serves as a shining example for other institutions to follow, ensuring that the principles of justice and equality are upheld for all members of society.
