    The Uganda Law Reform Commission has unveiled the 7th edition of the revised principal laws of Uganda, a comprehensive document encompassing all Ugandan laws effective as of December 31, 2023.

    Attorney General Kiryowa Kiwanuka emphasized the significance of this updated edition, slated to come into effect from July 1st this year.

    The Uganda Law Reform Commission (ULRC) has introduced the 7th edition of the revised principal laws of Uganda, marking a significant milestone in legal reform and consolidation. This updated compilation supersedes the 6th edition published in 2003, which previously encompassed laws effective from Uganda’s independence up to the year 2000.

    Attorney General Kiryowa Kiwanuka underscored the importance of this latest edition, stating,

    "The launch of the 7th edition of Uganda's revised principal laws represents a crucial step towards enhancing legal clarity and accessibility for all citizens. This updated compilation ensures that all Ugandan laws, both current and historical, are readily available in one comprehensive document."

    The new edition includes recent legislative amendments and updates, providing legal practitioners, policymakers, and the general public with a consolidated resource that reflects the current legal framework of Uganda. Attorney General Kiwanuka emphasized that the document will officially replace its predecessor and become effective from July 1st, 2024.

    "The launch of this 7th edition aligns with our commitment to ensuring transparency, coherence, and accessibility in the legal system," Attorney General Kiwanuka added. "It facilitates easier navigation of laws and enhances compliance with legal provisions across various sectors of our society."

    The compilation process involved meticulous review and consolidation efforts by the Uganda Law Reform Commission, collaborating closely with legal experts and stakeholders to ensure accuracy and relevance.

    The document incorporates laws spanning various fields, including constitutional law, criminal law, commercial law, and human rights law, among others.

    "This updated edition is a testament to our dedication to legal reform and the rule of law," remarked Dr. Sylvia Nabatanzi Muwebwa, Chairperson of the Uganda Law Reform Commission. "It represents a significant achievement in harmonizing Uganda's legislative landscape and supporting the administration of justice."

    The launch of the 7th edition is expected to streamline legal research and application processes, promoting a more efficient and responsive legal system.

    It also aims to enhance public trust and confidence in Uganda's legal framework, fostering a conducive environment for investment, governance, and socio-economic development.

    Moving forward, stakeholders anticipate that the updated laws compilation will serve as a critical tool for lawmakers, educators, students, and the judiciary, contributing to informed decision-making and ensuring equitable access to justice for all Ugandans.

    The launch of the 7th edition of Uganda’s revised principal laws marks a landmark achievement in legal reform, poised to strengthen the country’s legal framework and uphold the principles of justice and equality under the law.
