    Lawyers often speak before adjudicators, city councils, planning commissions, and give talks to civic groups, business executives, or company employees.

It’s progressively essential to be a viable open speaker if you mean to be a litigator. Judges and juries will anticipate it. Restricting insight will be prepared to jump if you need certainty or on the off chance that you continually slip up when making your contentions in court.

    Cannabis and Associated Medicinal Herbs in Uganda
    (Jescho Publishing House, 2022) Lubogo, Isaac Christopher
    Cannabis is a drug plant. People use the dried leaves, seed oil, and other parts of the cannabis plant for recreational and medicinal purposes. It can have a pleasurable effect and may soothe the symptoms of various conditions, such as chronic pain. It is prudent to say that the first written record of the plant consumption and growing is in South Africa. Jan van Riebeeck, who ordered officers of the Voorman to purchase "daccha" in Natal for trade with the Khoikhoi. The Dutch East India Company attempted to establish a monopoly on its sale, and to that end prohibited cultivation of the plant by Cape settlers from 1680. However, the ready availability of cannabis in the wild and through trade with indigenous peoples meant that there was little profit to be made. Consequently, the prohibition was lifted in 1700. Beginning in 1860, the Natal Colony began to import Indian workers (called "coolies" at the time) to supplement their labour force. These Indians brought with them the habit of consuming cannabis and hashish, which blended with local, extant African traditions. The European authorities were concerned by this practice, believing it sapped the vitality of their workers; consequently, in 1870, Natal's Coolie Law Consolidation prohibited "the smoking, use, or possession by and the sale, barter, or gift to, any Coolies whatsoever, of any portion of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) ..."

    Legal Personhood of Artificial Intelligence
    (Jescho Publishing House, 2022) Lubogo, Isaac Christopher
    With the rise of AI, artistic creation of content is no longer a purely human enterprise. Currently works made by AI are considered to be computer assisted or aided works and copyright/patent right is vested in the human being who uses Al as a tool. However, questions have arisen as who owns the copyright/patent right in AI-generated works where there is no human input. Is it the inventor of the AI? The owner of the AI (Who may not be the inventor)? Or might the AI be given a certain degree of legal subject status and thus have its own rights? Section 4 of the Copyrights and Neighbouring Rights Act, 20061 provides that the author of any work specified in section 5 shall have a right of protection of the work, where work is original and is reduced to material form in whatever method irrespective of quality of the work or the purpose for which it is created. Section 17 of the Industrial Property Act 20142 provides that the right to a patent belongs to the inventor. Section 17 of the same Act provides that where two or more persons have jointly made an invention the right to the patent belongs to them jointly. It remains unclear who the author or inventor of a work or invention by an AI will be.

    The Pyschology of Law
    (Jescho Publishing House, 2022) Lubogo, Isaac Christopher
    Psychology and law are familiar concepts in the experiment we call life. These concepts are of great importance and concern to Psychologists, political scientists, jurists, sociologists, etc. The frequency with which phycology and at times law are misunderstood and misconceived, provoke concern and debate in order to see the relationship between them. One might ask why the order in the arrangement of the concepts, why not law and Psychology but rather Psychology of the law? My answer is simply, it is so arranged because we have Psychology of law, meaning that we can apply psychological lens and principles to these other concepts. The unwearied think that Psychology is not relevant to the concrete realities in the society. This is not true. Psychology is not for those with massive intellects alone, it is approachable, one only need to be disposed, prepared and disciplined. It does not parade only senseless abstract ideas; it rather deals with concrete and particular issues of life.
