Message From Associate Dean, School of Law, Mombasa Campus
Dr. Sarah Kinyanjui
The School of Law, University of Nairobi is the pioneer law faculty in Kenya. Established in 1970, the Faculty of Law has developed into a leading School of Law whose programmes are offered in three Campuses: Parklands, Mombasa and Kisumu.
The School of Law, Mombasa Campus was established in 2008. The School strives to provide the students with a good foundation in law courses and to develop critical skills that they require to excel as lawyers. With a strong team of academics who are experts in different areas of law, the students have a great support system and enjoy a great learning environment. The School has curved out its niche in Maritime Law, Islamic Law, and International Transnational Crime Law.
A distinctive feature of the School is its proactive engagement with practitioners and institutions related to the legal field. The students are thus exposed early to the "law in action" which gives them a good grasp of the law and introduces them to the varied career options available to lawyers. Striving to provide an all rounded education, students are encouraged to engage in constructive extra curricula activities and contribute to the community. The School has a strong public interest programme which is affiliated to local institutions through which students offer pro bono services to the community.
The School operates as a part and parcel of the umbrella School of Law of the University of Nairobi and has aligned its programmes to the School of Law's vision of being "a world-class Law School committed to the promotion of academic achievement and excellence in research".
