Judicial Independence

Judiciary project; Enhancing Judicial Independence in Uganda by promoting an accountable and effective institution of the judiciary.

CEPIL in 2016 launched the state of Judiciary Report highlighting the institutional and external weaknesses of the     Judiciary that prevented the institution from effectively dispensing justice. Key amongst the things that prevented effective delivery of justice was the lack of proper mechanisms to monitor the performance of the judiciary. As a way to improve on service delivery, the project is implementing a score card aimed at appraising the performance of the judiciary in the delivery of justice. The score card is being compiled and it will be launched in 2018.
