On 21st April 2017, the Inaugural Katende, Ssempebwa Moot Court awards were handed out to the various winners at the Law Development Centre Graduation Ceremony. This event was presided over by our very own Sim Katende. 

M/s Katende, Ssempebwa & Co. Advocates considers the education of young lawyers and legal professionals to be a critical aspect of the development of the legal profession. As such we have partnered with the Law Development Centre to sponsor the Katende, Ssempebwa & Co. Advocates Law Development Centre Moot Court Awards for the outstanding performers and victors in the annual Law Development Centre moot court competition. 

The spirit of the Award as such is to foster healthy competition and refine the young lawyers and legal professionals at the Law Development Centre to be the best budding litigators they can be while providing an incentive to for the hard work and effort that will no doubt come with the rigours of this competition. To ensure objectivity and uniformity of standards, the Law Development Centre will determine the criteria for the moot Competition and manage the organizing and the evaluation of the competition, while Katende, Ssempebwa & Co Advocates will play the role of managing the awards subsequent to LDC determining the victors.

The Awards will specifically recognise Student Registrars, the Runners Up team, the Winning Team and the Best Orator and shall take the form of individual certificates to each student registrar, each member of the Runners Up team and to each member of the Winning team, a shield to the Winning Team indicating the winners of the Competition, a trophy to the Winning Team and a plaque to the best orator.

We congratulate the Inaugural awardees and look forward to next year’s Competition.
