The study considers the performance and impact of the Commercial Court Division of the High Court of Uganda (the ‘Commercial Court’) from its inception in 1996 to date, including the role that donor assistance has played in supporting institutional reform. Retrospective reviews over such a lengthy time frame are rare, with donor time-scales tending to be short term and based on relatively short project cycles. Bucking this trend, this study considers the extent to which the Department for International Development Uganda’s support to the Commercial Court from 2000-2005 has contributed to sustained reform today.
