Similarly Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses attract participants from Public Service & Private Sector and from the Community region and this has increased collaboration efforts with regional and international professional bodies. The School’s commitment is provision of quality legal training programmes and courses. The School has achieved the following; ISO Certification The attainment of ISO 9001:2008 Certification by the Council of Legal Education / Kenya School of Law was an important achievement. This process was led by the ISO Steering Committee and Millenium Management Consultants (ISO Consultants). A lot of support was received from the Council, the Director and the Heads of department. One of the key activities undertaken was ensuring that we had documented the procedures of our operations. These provide a framework which contributes towards delivery of quality services to our customers. The Quality Policy was developed and highlighted key issues that we would address.
We also undertook various levels of staff training. All staff were provided with ISO awareness training. The ISO Steering Committee was trained on Systems and Documentation requirements and a team of staff was trained as ISO Auditors. We undertook our first ISO audit reviews in June 2009. In November 2009, Kenya Bureau of Standards undertook the Certification audit and Certification was attained on 1st February, 2010 following successful closure of the issues they had raised in the Certification Audit. ISO Audit reviews continue to be undertaken. We have successfully undergone several ISO surveillance audits. We look forward to continual improvement of the established system.
