Judicial Attachments and Clinicals

Judicial Attachment programme aims to imbue a clinical approach to learning law, giving students a platform to “learn law by doing law.” In practice, Judicial Attachment programme occurs through judicial placements of students at the trial courts in Kenya, giving the students an opportunity to serve as a student law clerk for magistrates and judges. Through the judicial placements, students learn about the role of the judge, the role of a law clerk, and other legal practitioners in judicial decision-making.

The objective of Judicial Attachment programme is to firstly, to provide students with opportunities for applying and expanding skills acquired through prior simulated experiences especially interviewing, counselling, case planning and litigation. Secondly, to provide students with opportunities for learning the substantive law of the field of practice-both at the bar and the bench. Thirdly, to provide students with opportunities to develop their ability as problem solvers. Lastly, to provide students with opportunities to offer legal assistance either through the School's own projects or in co-ordination with external projects.
