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.
