UCU law students win scholarships in the US
As the pandemic kept on the look disorganising all arrangements, some of them couldn’t keep waiting.
The John H. Jackson Moot Competition which had it’s African Regional Level supposed to be hosted in Nairobi and the international sessions in Geneva, Switzerland had them online instead.
It was here that law students from the Mukono based university including Bridget Ruth Kasobya, Veronica Nekesa Namyalo, Isaac Ssebulime and Jemimah Jehopia attended and through to the international sessions.
Among the 28 teams from Africa, only 4 succeeded to go through to the international sessions where apart from Uganda Christian University, others were from Kenya and South Africa.
These students worn themselves scholarships to pursue post-graduate studies in Law at the George Town University in the US.
A full tuition scholarship at the George Town University is at $64,548 and each of these students won $32,274.
Their team leader Jemimah says ‘this was a great career opportunity and foundation for the other subsequent law moots’.
The theme of the competition was to contribute to clinical legal education globally as well as to support and enhance the development of trade between nations.
We congratulate them upon this success.
