Legal System

Uganda’s constitution provides for an independent judiciary. The legal system is based on English Common Law with some elements of Islamic law. The Supreme Court is the final court of appeal, lower down is the Court of Appeal, followed by the High Court and the magistrates’ courts. Amongst other smaller courts, including local council courts and family and children courts, are Qadhis (Islamic) Courts which deal with personal matters such as marriage, divorce, inheritance of property and guardianship.
