I am a young advocate, particularly interested in defending the rights of marginalized people. I am currently working on a concept paper which will realize my interests.

I also want to study oil revenue and the law. As a country that hopes to see a revamp of the economy, given that oil exploitation in Uganda is expected to kick off in 2017, i want to see to it that oil revenues are not swindled or misused by scrupulous public officials at the expense of Ugandans. I did my thesis in the area of oil revenues at Undergraduate level, and i therefore hope to build on this knowledge at Masters level
