A group of students, pursuing the postgraduate bar course within the class of 2017 at the Law Development Centre (LDC) have asked the high court to direct the institution to produce their answer scripts and marking guides for the examinations for verification.
These were led by Godfrey Akampulira and Simon Peter Oriokot who accused the institution management of maliciously recording lower marks in the supplementary examinations they had passed highly with the intention of charging them a repeating fee of Shs 2.5M for the failed subjects.
The duo on monday asked Justice Lydia Mugambe to task LDC to produce their examination answer scripts for the supplementary examinations they sat in August last year and February this year.
The judge set December 9th to deliver the ruling in the matter but it should be noted that this year’s LDC graduation is slated for December 13th.
The students also claim that LDC introduced supplementary exams and weekly individual tests and also the fees for the supplementary examinations was increased to a certain percentage without their knowledge.
However, the institution’s lawyer, John Musiime said the court should dismiss the case with costs arguing that, LDC is an institution with autonomous powers to have its policies in place.
