Abstract: The thesis "Legal Analysis of Bank Duties Liabilities in Relation to Customer Protection in Uganda" is motivated by the background of the study to pertinently contribute remedies that can securely address the banking sector challenges in meeting duties and obligations to protect customers. It should be noted that while there is a law in place to govern bank duties and obligations to customers, in total this law has not been successfully drawn and implemented. The study examines the efficacy of the legal and institutional frameworks of banks in protecting customers. This is in order to establish why in the presence laws and policies the bank-customer relationship remains highly challenged. Reflecting on this setting, efficiency of the banking law in Uganda is examined particularly, in the execution of fiduciary duty in loan management. The purpose of the study is to find out the gaps in the existing legislation in the bankcustomer protection relationship and to suggest possible interventions in meeting equity, Circumstances leading to breach of fiduciary duties were identified as failure to protect a trust, secret commissions and bribes, misleading advice, undue influences, conflict of duties and interest, lack of trust by bank customers among others and the Thesis provides recommendations. The study concludes that fiduciary issues are determined purposely to bring equity1 t increasingly recognize bank failure in fiduciary duties owing to conflict of interest hence non performing loans. Legislative measures have to work hand in hand with customer consent.
