Plans are underway for the School of Law to start courses in the extractive Industry. During a regional consultative meeting held at the School recently, it was revealed that the region was spending big sums of money sending staff abroad to take on courses in the extractives.
A dialogue of experts from the region that convened at the School of Law noted that as citizens, it was our responsibility to ensure that the resources were exploited for economic, social transformation of the people.
Under the stewardship of Dr. Maria Nassali, a Lecturer at the School of Law, with support from the Ford Foundation, efforts to initiate training programs are in advanced stages.
