The Department of Practical Legal Studies was established specifically to equip students with practical legal skills. The idea is that students should have both competencies; theoretical and practical skills.

  • Civil Procedure
  • Legal Drafting
  • Law of Evidence
  • Accounting and Taxation
  • Extended Essay Writing
  • Clinical Legal Education.

These are practical courses and aims at imparting/inculcating and enhancing competencies, skills and attitudes that are necessary for one to become a lawyer of great difference.


The department does also run a legal clinic where students are trained. Firstly on how to provide legal service to the public and then provide free legal service to vulnerable groups in society. Students do also conduct outreach services sensitizing communities on human rights issues. Currently, students and members of staff do meet clients at Chikanda Clinic every Friday from 2 p.m to 4 p.m.

The clinic is continuously growing and so far we have Child Rights Clinic, Bail and Mitigation Clinic, Disability Rights Clinic, Human Rights and HIV and AIDS Clinic. The Department exists to equip students with these practical skills so that they are ready to serve the public.
