   Message from the Dean

Welcome to Madda Walabu University School of Law. The School was launched in 2011 and after its establishment, had begun its academic activities with 37 degree regular and 47 extension program students. Today, more than 100 students are attending the regular LL. B program whereas 32 students are enrolled in the extension degree program. Upon its establishment, the School had only three full-time instructors but currently 21 members of academic staff have joined and taught law courses in the School.

The School of Law has an honored experience of providing access to justice for all vulnerable groups of the communities through its legal aid centers in collaboration with Oromia Supreme Court and Bale Zone High Court. On the other hand, our School is a founding member of Ethiopian Law Schools Association and has been an active participant in the Ethiopian Law schools’ consortium since 2012. I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the School of Law.
