The Constitution is the supreme law of Uganda. The present constitution was adopted on 8 October 1995. It is Uganda's fourth constitution since the country's independence from Britain in 1962.

The first Constitution was adopted in 1962 only to be replaced 4 years later in 1966. The 1966 Constitution, passed in a tense political environment and without debate, was replaced in 1967. Before it was succeded by the 1995 Constitution, the 1967 Constitution suffered various periods of suspension, either in full or in part.

In 2005, the 1995 Constitution was amended to provide for a multi-party political system and, controversially, to allow an incumbent president to hold office for more than two five-year terms.
