ABSTRACT The study sought to analyze the role oflaw in the protection of the rights of prisoners.

The study objectives were; to analyze the various legal policy and institutional framework for the

protection of prisoners' rights in Uganda, to discuss the international and national legal

provisions in protecting rights of prisoners' and to suggest remedies to the protection of the

rights of prisoners.

Although there is a lot of legislation, text books, scholarly papers and research articles about the

protection of the rights of prisoners, the same remain on paper and there practical application

remain shrouded with unce1iainty. Human rights of prisoners are a contentious issue in both

international and national human rights.

The law prohibits cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment against prisoners' protects freedom of

worship, right to life etc.

The prisoners face the challenges of poor living conditions, overcrowding in prison cell, poor

feeding etc.; the researcher recommends that the judiciary should ensure that community service

and non-custodial sentences are followed to decrease congestion in prison, recommends that

adequate education and sensitization be made for the prison staff and inmates, recommends that

judiciary in its mandate should increase on its efficiency and even set a specific time period in

which a case should be concluded, this could help in ensuring justice for the prisoners.
