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 11 active committees. Each committee is devoted to a particular area of the law. Our Committees include:Practice Ethics & Standards Committee Continuing Professional Development Committee Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee Information Communication Technology & Intellectual Property Rights Committee Public Interest, Legal Aid & Human Rights Committee Law Reform, Devolution & Constitutional Implementation Committee Environment, Land, Natural Resources & Conveyancing Committee Gender Committee Young Lawyers Committee Editorial Committee Corporate (In-House) Public Sector Counsel Committee
Membership of standing committees is voluntary and is invited two years from practicing advocates.
