JUSTICE ISAAC LENAOLA
A young, resilient, brilliant legal mind and respectful are what Judge Lenaola is known for within the legal fraternity.
The son of pastoralists who beat many odds to build a career in law was the first to be entrusted with leading the most crucial constitutional and human rights court division of the High Court. Lenaola was born in 1967 in Samburu county.
Judge Lenaola joined the Kenya School of Law in 1990 until 1991, when he was admitted to the Bar.
He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law from the University of Nairobi in 1990. The Alliance High School alumni started his career at Rimui & Mubia Advocates as an associate advocate. He at some point served as a consultant for the World Bank, the Arid Lands Management project, Oxfam and the International Union for Conservation of Nature on issues of land and resource management and conflicts in pastoralist regions. Lenaola was appointed a High Court Judge in 2003 and served as a Resident Judge in Embu, Meru, Machakos and Kakamega.
