Appeals Court to mediate 61 appeals in a day


The Court of Appeal is set to handle at least 61 cases in a day through Appellate Mediation, the newest alternative dispute mechanism (ADR) in Uganda. Two justices of the Court – outgoing Deputy Chief Justice Steven B.K. Kavuma and Justice Geoffrey Kiryabwire, who heads the Appellate Court Mediation, – will on September 11 handle 31 cases and 30 cases, each, respectively.

This will be the Court's maiden attempt at Appellate Mediation, a mechanism popularly used by the courts in the developed world to give quick justice to the people.
