I am very grateful to have the chance for imparting this message on behalf of the School. School
of Law is too young as compared to other Law Schools in the country as well as other
departments of Wachemo University too which was launched in 2016 (2009EC). Since its
establishment, the School has been undertaking several activities to achieve its overall goals.
The School aspires to prepare and produce competent legal professionals who work for the
prevalence of rule of law, democracy, constitutionalism, human rights, good governance,
tolerance, social justice and development. It is established with the aim to train and educate
human power to meet the ever increasing needs of Ethiopian society in the field of law.
Moreover, the School has the objective of producing vibrant research community so as to
generate knowledge through research and publication as well as solving problems with in
community. This cannot be realized by simply launching Law School. Rather, it needs effort and
commitment on part of the staff members of the School in strengthening teaching-learning
process, doing problem solving researches and engaging in community services. It also needs
cooperation and working with other institutions and Law Schools across the Country and outside.
Therefore, all the esteemed staffs of the school should feel responsibility and play their part in
this endeavor. I also call for the contribution and collaboration from other stakeholders such as
students, the university community and other institutions in order to realize the objectives set to
be achieved. Thank you.
