The Faculty of Law was established in 2014 following recommendations of expert studies on the state of legal education in the region. It is the tenth faculty to be created at Egerton. From exploratory analyses, it became imperative that our Faculty of Law and its programmes should be structured to transcend general-practitioner oriented legal education and seek to make a distinctive contribution to skills training needs in specific areas that are of critical importance to society and the legal profession. Our academic programmes are being fashioned to provide training in human rights law and practice, and legal research and writing as we set out to develop unique positioning in these areas.

At this Faculty, we dedicate ourselves from the outset to the mission of establishing a reputation as a leader in legal education, built around the philosophy of our programmes and the quality of our training, which shall be reflected in the competence and employability of our graduates.

Vision of the Faculty of Law

Our vision is to be a world class Law School for the advancement of innovative legal education and research, and human rights discourse.

Mission of the Faculty of Law

The Mission of the Faculty of Law is to provide quality legal education that fosters critical thinking, human rights discourse, innovative research, pursuit of justice through scholarship, advocacy and collaboration, and service to the society that contributes to national and global development.
