The society since its inception has participated in a total of three international moot court competitions, two national moot court competitions and more than 10 internal moot court competitions. The above entails the success of the society.
With the international moot court, the university through the said law society has participated in two international humanitarian moot court competition organized by ICRC, Nairobi delegation held in Arusha, Tanzania, whereby the students of RUCO had a chance to show their skills in practicing the international humanitarian law (a role play modality) to other students from all over the world. In both competitions our team was recommended in their ability of practicing international humanitarian law. On the other hand, in 2008, the RULSO in collaboration with the University was able to send a team to the African Human Rights moot court competition in Lagos, Nigeria, whereby one of the participants from our team was awarded a certificate on the best point provider.
With regard to the national moot court competition, the University has participated in the national moot court at Dodoma, and the recent event was the Tanzania national moot court competition organized by RULSO. The guest of honor and the Presiding Judge of that competition on the final round were His Lordship, Augustino Ramadhani, the Chief Justice of Tanzania, as he then was. The exiting part of this competition is that, the team from RUCO arose the winner of the competition, and being awarded the national trophy of the moot court competition in Tanzania.
Finally in our internal moot court competitions, RULSO has created a very active and ready to participate members, who are competent to participate in any moot court competition.
Public Discussions and public lectures
Another activity that the society also does include organizing and preparing the public discussions on important and controversial topics which have direct impact to the society or that which can help the law students to be good intellectuals in terms of thinking ability. From the existence of the organization RULSO had conducted 5 public discussions.
On the side of public lectures, whereby experts from internal and external give public lectures on various topics RULSO and the University had conducted more than 14 public lectures.
With this aspect, special attention should be directed to the public discussion regarding the constitution of the united republic of Tanzania and the fate of our nation, held in 28th may at RUCO Assembly Hall, which marks a nice example of public discussion that RULSO organizes. During the said public discussion, the guest of honor was Hon. Celina Kombani, the Minister for Justice and Constitution Affairs of the United Republic of Tanzania.
The said discussion involved people from various, disciplines, since the issue of constitution of a country is not for lawyers only, hence it was an interesting discussion on that
This was a special program designed particularly for the fresher’s in the field of law (first year’s students). Under this program students get a chance of visiting the court premises while in groups and under the supervision of RULSO leaders.
This program aims at imparting the students with the knowledge of court structure especially the court system of the united republic of Tanzania. Apart from that, the students also learn some court processes and procedures from filling of the court documents, pre-trial conference, trial and finally awarding of the ruling/judgments.
By this program students do practice of what they have learned in class. It is also a nice program that motivates a law student to know exactly the nature of their future carrier as well as it helps to build confidence & increase the argumentation skills of the students.
This program started in 2008/2009 academic year and it continues each academic year
Radio /TV Programs
RULSO with collaboration with Radio Maria was able to conduct different programs like discussion, lecture, debate and live moot courts for the purpose of educating community.
Apart from the success accrued from the activities of RULSO, other success can be seen from the associate members of RULSO, who are now enjoying their employment in various sectors here in Tanzania. This was brought by good networking provided by RULSO.
