You are here ABOUT LSK

 

The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) is Kenya’s premier bar association, with membership of all practicing advocates, currently numbering in excess of the ten thousand.

It has the mandate to advise and assist members of the legal profession, the government and the larger public in all matters relating to the administration of justice in Kenya.

The Society was established by an Act of Parliament – The Law Society of Kenya Act (Chapter 18 of the Laws of Kenya). The Law Society in its present form was formed in 1948 by section 3 of the Law Society of Kenya Ordinance, 1949. That Act was later repealed by the current Law Society of Kenya Act, which came into force on 30th October, 1992.
Former Chairmen of the Law Society of Kenya

The Law Society of Kenya would like to recognise and extend its appreciation to all its former chairmen, who dedicated their time and commitment to building the Society into the dynamic organisation it is today.
