Title:Kenya trains lawyers
Author:Silva, Enid de
Periodical:The New Commonwealth - Society for Promotion of International Law and Order
Geographic term:Kenya
Subject:legal education
Abstract:This article deals with the Kenya School of Law in Nairobi which makes it possible for any young Kenyan with a minimum qualification of an Overseas Cambridge School Certificate with five credits (one in English Language) or the equivalent to undergo a five-year period of study for the legal profession in Kenya instead of seeking en trance in a law school overseas and qualifying for the legal profession there. The student at Kenya's School of Law is both an articled clerk unpaid - and a law student, and this practical experience in law gives the locally qualifie advocate an advantage over the student who studies law under a system which does not include practical training.
