rights of the accused
Abstract:This is a comment on the enjoyment of the right to legal representation or counsel under the 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda. It focuses on the rationale for this right, the safeguards the right seeks to offer to the accused/litigant, and the extent to which the right has been realized in Uganda in light of the socioeconomic circumstances prevalent in the country. Furthermore, the comment substantially and analytically unearths the weaknesses and strengths underpinning Articles 28 (3) c, d and e and 23(3) of the Constitution. Notes, ref., sum.
