3,000 law graduates stranded and denied career dreams

Over 3,000 law students who graduated from at least six universities seven years ago are yet to be admitted to the Kenya School of Law (KSL), writes Titus Ominde for Nairobi News.

The law graduates are stranded and now wondering when they will be admitted for the Diploma Course at KSL so that they can begin their legal careers. The students, drawn from the University of Nairobi, Kenyatta University, Strathmore, Riara, Catholic University of East Africa and Moi University, appealed to KSL to admit them.

“These students completed their law degrees and cannot practise because they have not undergone the one-year training at KSL to get a Diploma in Law before they can be admitted into the Roll of Advocates by the Chief Justice,” Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, who accompanied the law students, told the media at the Milimani Law Courts on Tuesday. Owino urged the concerned institutions to act to save the students from further agony.
