It is incumbent on each student to familiarize themselves with the provisions of the Council of Legal Education (Kenya School of Law) Regulations, 2009 (Legal Notice No. 169 of 2009) that provides the general legal framework for training in the ATP at this School.
Inquiries & Complaints
Incase a student has an issue, it should be brought to the Firm Leaders’ attention, who will inform the class Supervisor. If the issue is not sorted at that point, the Supervisor forwards the complaint which should be in writing to the Academic Services Manager. He then forwards the matter to the Assistant Director, Advocates Training Programme and if the matter is still not sorted, it is brought to the attention of the Deputy Director.
Inquiries about application, admission, registration fees payment & processing, assignment delivery, examination results, resits, clearance and gazettement are handled by Academic Services Department and Assistant Director, Advocates Training Program.
