The Uganda Law Reform Commission was established by Article 248 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda (1995) and the specific operational details are provided in the Uganda Law Reform Commission Act (Cap 25, Laws of Uganda). The core mandate of the Commission is to study and keep under constant review the Acts and other laws comprising the Laws of Uganda with a view to making recommendations for their systematic improvement, development, modernization and reform.
The visit was part of a bench-marking study undertaken by the Uganda Law Reform Commission to the Republic of Ireland to research best and next practices. The delegation also visited the Valuation Office as part of their current project on the review of valuation law in Uganda.
