However, customary law is in effect only when it does not conflict with statutory law.

The Constitution is the supreme law in Uganda and any law or custom that is in conflict with it is null and void to the extent of the inconsistency. The Judiciary is an independent legal organ comprised of Courts of Judicature as provided for by the Constitution. The Judiciary is entrusted to administer justice in both civil and criminal matters through courts of judicature including the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal, the High Court and other courts or tribunals established by Parliament. The highest court in Uganda is the Supreme Court. The Court of Appeal is next in hierarchy and it handles appeals from the High Court but it also sits as the Constitutional Court in determining matters that require Constitutional interpretation.
