Law Society calls crisis meeting amid fallout over arbitration centre

Monday, 14th May 2019

"KAMPALA – Uganda Law Society (ULS) has called for a crisis meeting to handle issues regarding the legality of the arbitration and mediation centre.

Some disgruntled lawyers have accused ULS executive and Uganda Bankers Association (UBA) for establishing the International Centre for Arbitration and Mediation in Kampala (ICAMEK) to help protect and assist the public most especially in commercial matters or disputes.

ULS is one of the subscribers to ICAMEK whose directors are John Fisher Kanyemibwa and former ULS President Francis Gimara, with law firm, MMKAS Advocates as the company secretary.

According to USL President Simon Peter Kinobe, the members’ extraordinary meeting has been set for May 22, 2019, and is aimed at reaching a consensus on the issue.
