The practical aspect of teaching is effective to legal education


The UR- School of Law officially launched an alumni association Chapter on Friday, March 18th, 2022, at Lemigo Hotel. The event brought together the UR- School of Law and its stakeholders, who are the main actors in Rwanda’s legal and justice sectors.
The theme under discussion “rethinking of collective responsibility for Legal Education” turned around building a strong legal education in terms of making the soft infrastructure rather than the physical one.

Prof. Dr. Lyambabaje Alexandre, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Rwanda, says that the UR is more willing to support this initiative, and it is looking at how best to develop infrastructures for students to learn in acceptable conditions. “The University of Rwanda that I am representing today, we are really looking at how best we can improve infrastructures to make our students learn well. We are ready and more willing to contribute to this project.”

The Hon. the Chief Justice, Dr. Faustin Ntezilyayo, says that ; to think about how to set up a strong legal education requires having requisite tools to provide effective education. “When it comes to going through the legal curriculums that we teach, there is always the same aspect that is considered. We should not only rely on the theoretical aspect of teaching, but the theory has to be related to the practice.”
The main objective of School of law Alumni Association Chapter is to bridge the gap between the School and Alumni. A committee composed of Me BUTARE Emmanuel, Dr. BIKESHA Denis and KALIHANGABO Isabelle was elected to lead the 2022 Chapter.
