Names of 174 lawyers who failed LDC exams
A total of 174 lawyers missed their graduation on Thursday after failing the final and supplementary exams.
The LDC exams were conducted two months back and the lawyers who failed the papers will have to re-sit the papers. We have the names of the lawyers who failed the bar exams but we shall not reveal them because we don’t want to shame them.
The Diploma in Legal practice takes 11 months. However failure rates at the LDC have gone down from 93% in 2009/2010 to 74% in 2010/2011 according to LDC records. No one is allowed to practice law in Uganda unless that person studies the bar course.
