KAMPALA - The High Court grounds in Kampala literally lit up as Judicial Officers, members of the legal fraternity and representatives of the central government gathered for the launching of the New Law Year on Friday (January 31, 2020).

It is at the New Law Year that the Judiciary accounts to the public for the authority and resources entrusted by the people in the Judiciary.

The Chief Justice, Hon. Justice Bart M Katureebe, presented the State of the Judiciary address where he revealed that the Judiciary had disposed of 181,137 cases. "...the Judiciary made tremendous strides that are worth hailing. Inspite of the limited human resource and other resources, the Judiciary has managed to dispose of a total number of 181,137 cases," he said.

He said the Judiciary has put in place systems, services and innovations intended to improve justice delivery, give quick returns and act more transparently. He went on to enumerate the successes of Plea Bargaining, Mediation and Small Claims Procedure.
