HISTORY


The Strathmore Law Clinic is a student run institution within the Strathmore Law School that was established in 2016 around the question, ‘What can we as law students do to help those who cannot access justice?’ It is an opportunity for law students to devote their legal skills to ensure access to justice for all Kenyans through pro-bono work.Since then, the Strathmore Law Clinic has conducted stakeholder engagement sessions on police brutality in Kibera with integral support from IPOA, Kenya Police and Crime Si Poa, and training of paralegals in Langata Women’s Prison in conjunction with the African Prisons Project. The Strathmore Law Clinic, driven by a philosophy of empowering the marginalized has developed the programme ‘Barefoot legal’ whose main objective is to train paralegals tied to community based organizations to help widen our reach. By cultivating integral partnerships, we continue to make significant strides in ensuring access to justice for all Kenyans irrespective of their gender, ethnicity or social-economic status.
