The Uganda Christian University hosts a four-year LLB Programme with approximately 900 students. Class sizes typically range from 100 to 130 students and are largely lecture based. This environment is not ideal for facilitating improvements in the writing and oral presentation skills of students. In September of 2014 the Faculty of Law at Uganda Christian University launched a revised curriculum. The revised curriculum addressed perceived problem areas in educational delivery through cost-effective strategies. The utilization and leverage of teaching assistants is at the centre of its change strategies. This paper provides an overview of the change strategies and presents findings from an assessment of these strategies. The paper will be of particular interest and value to law schools in emerging states facing the challenge of large class sizes and limited resources.
