LIVE: Amicus Curiae time!

Uganda's SUPREME COURT is hearing an Amicus Curiae application by Makerere dons and Civial Society Organisations. They want to be friends of court in the ongoing Uganda Elections Petition 1 of 2016.

Amicus Curiae:

 Latin for "friend of the court." Frequently, a person or group who is not a party to a lawsuit, but has a strong interest in the matter, will petition the court for permission to submit a brief in the action with the intent of influencing the court's decision.
