Ministry of Attorney General Holds Consultations on Judiciary Reform

The Ministry of the Attorney General held its final day of consultations as they relate to the judiciary reform.  The consultations surround the proposed enactment of the Magistrates Court Bill, 2023 that intends to amalgamate the Inferior Courts Act, District Courts (Procedure) Act, Summary Jurisdiction (Offences) Act and the Family Court Act. This specific Bill also intends to replace those acts, to revise archaic language therein, to remove redundant and repetitious provisions, and to implement judicial reforms for the magistracy.  The ministry has conducted three days of consultations with the last session being this afternoon at the House of Culture.  During the consultations, presentations were made by Attorney General, Hon. Magali Marin Young S.C. alongside legislative drafters, Ms. Esther Majambere Musoke and Ms. Tori Lord Thompson from the Attorney General’s Ministry.
