MetadataShow full item record
In the resolution of land disputes in Uganda, courts are enjoined to visit the scene of the land in dispute in order to gather certain facts and evidence to facilitate a fair hearing of the parties' dispute. To facilitate that, laws or instruments have been passed especially by the Chief Justice and the Ministries as were explored to highlight the importance of locus visits in the country. The practice of the courts in Uganda has equally been commendable in that regard. What is "Locus in quo?" and "what role does it play in land justice in Uganda?" These and many more are some of the questions that the researcher poses throughout this dissertation. This dissertation, therefore, tried to make a case for the improved administration of land disputes through the wide adoption of Locus in quo visits in compliance with the requirements of the laws and practice requirements in place.
