Varsity unveils a Law Journal

In line with the University strategic plan of 2015-2019 and the Schools strategic plan spanning the same period, the School of law has embarked on 

School of law Journal

a transformative agenda that seeks to position it as a centre of excellence in research and training in law.


The exponential growth in Kenya’s economy, increased foreign investment and its increasing role as an international and regional player has resulted into multifaceted legal problems that have both a local and international dimensions. This has created a need for re-orientation of legal training so as to produce human resources for this emerging market segment . This reality has seen the MKU school of Law adopt a new niche area ‘International and development Law’ as a way of filling the identified gap which has resulted into overreliance on foreign lawyers.

The school on Friday 14th July 2017 launched MKU Law journal with the objectives of :


  1. Providing a platform for dissemination of legal research findings.

  2. Inculcating the spirit of research and publication in legal training.

  3. Advancing knowledge sharing among legal practitioners and educators.

  4. 4 .Acting as a platform for collaborative research between state ,non-state  and the private sector.

  5. Enhancing the internationalization of legal research and training.

The journal will be published 3 times a year, although special issues of the journal targeting specific concerns in the area of law may be published as and when they emerge.
