Abstract: This Dissertation analyzed the role of the judiciary in protection and promotion of rights of indigent prisoners in Uganda/ It was guided by the specific objectives which included finding out whether Uganda's legal regime protects the rights of indigent prisoners/ depicting the role of the judiciary in the protection of indigent prisoner rights and exploring the legal rights of detained persons under international legal regime. The judiciary is the system of courts that interprets and applies the law in the name of the state. The judiciary also provides a mechanism for the resolution of disputes. In some nations/ under doctrines of separation of powers/ the judiciary generally does not make law or enforce law but rather interprets law and applies it to the facts of each case. In other nations/ the judiciary can make law/ known as Common La~ by setting precedent for other judges to folio as opposed to Statutory Law made by the legislature. The .Judiciary is often tasked with ensuring equal justice under law. The study recommends there to be a deliberate attempt to establish a prison regime in which the living conditions of prisoners are consistent with human rights standards and international best practices/ the laws protecting inherent prisoners are their but their implementation is the challenge. The researcher winds up the research with recommendations to ensure that the rights of inherent prisoners are promoted by judiciary.
