Law stu­dent sues CLE over its de­ci­sion

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries/judiciary -

A law stu­dent has moved to court to chal­lenge a de­ci­sion lock­ing him out of the ad­vo­cates train­ing pro­gramme for the 2017-18 aca­demic year. Kennedy Omondi says he sought recog­ni­tion of his bach­e­lors of law de­gree from the Com­mis­sion for Le­gal Ed­u­ca­tion in vain so he could be ad­mit­ted to the Kenya School of Law to pur­sue the pro­gramme. Through lawyer God­frey Otenyo, Omondi said he ap­pealed against CLE’s de­ci­sion, but his ap­peal was re­jected. He said CLE’s de­ci­sion is harsh and un­fair to him as he dili­gently stud­ied and worked hard to be awarded his law de­gree by a li­censed le­gal ed­u­ca­tion provider. “I ex­pected to join the Kenya School of Law but the de­ci­sion by the CLE locks me out from pur­su­ing my pro­fes­sional am­bi­tion of be­com­ing an ad­vo­cate,” he said.
