Consistent with its broad statutory mandate, the Law Society of Kenya has numerous specialized committees. These are tasked with fulfilling particular facets of Law Society of Kenya’s objective of fostering the administration of law and justice in Kenya.
Consisting of dedicated volunteers, each committee focuses on a particular area of law, pooling together specialist skills and experience in order to scrutinise legislation, Court decisions and other government policies.
By drawing on the insights of committees, the Law Society of Kenya can in turn meet its statutory duties and act as a major player in law reform and policy debates.
There are currently 17 active committees. Each committee is devoted to a particular area of the law. Our Committees include:Practice Standards & Ethics Continuing Legal Education Committee Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee Information Communication Technology & Intellectual Property Rights Committee Energy, Mining and Natural Resources Committee Public Interest, Legal Aid & Human Rights Committee Law Reform & Constitutional Implementation Committee Devolution and County Legislation Committee Environment, Land & Conveyancing Committee Regulations Committee Gender and Child Law Committee Criminal Justice Committee Young Lawyers Committee Budget and Finance Committee Editorial Committee In-House Counsel Committee Medico-Legal Committee Disciplinary Tribunal
Membership of standing committees is voluntary and is invited two years from practicing advocates.
