The Law Development Center decides to go for online teaching following lockdown extension


The institution in Uganda responsible for grooming and moulding law students into practicing lawyers later decided to adopt E-learning which it never thought of this year.

After the presidential directives on 18th March to close all Education institutions by 20th March following the novel pandemic that was sweeping the entire world, LDC too decided to close and focused on the return of students but unfortunately, lockdown has been extended to prevent the disease.

On 7th. May, the administrators at LDC decided to put their resolutions into practice and informed students of the new move and forwarded email messages to all the students.

According to the message forwarded, online classes shall be scheduled for the week of 11th – 15th May 2020 as follows;

(a) Category A Subjects revision classes in respect of 1st and 2nd term work.

(b) Introductory Classes in respect of 3rd term Category C (optional) subjects to enable students make informed choices.

(c) A series of meetings with the Director to prepare students for the adoption of online learning.

Every week, the department will be drafting a time table for classes to move on.

“The Department is in the process of preparing the timetable for next week which will be shared with you in due course. The timetable will among others indicate the mode(s) of delivery in respect of the different sessions”, reads the message.

The center also informed students that it has no plans of administering online exams but focusing on revision and feedback.

“We believe that this intervention will keep both the students and the Professional Advisors active during this period”, further, the mail read.

Students were urged to prepare accordingly as they embrace the intervention.
