The current Council of Legal Education/Kenya School of Law was established as an independent statutory body in 1995 with the specific mandate to: organize and conduct courses for the development of legal professionals; conduct courses for Government personnel on the general understanding of the law and organizing Para-legal courses and programmes. In addition, the Council of Legal Education (CLE)/Kenya School of Law (KSL) is to offer fellowships, scholarships and bursaries and establish, manage and control training institutions for Legal Education in the country.
Under the auspices of the GJLOS and FLSTAP programmes, the School has also been able to set in motion processes towards becoming a centre of excellence in legal education and training locally and in the region.
Other than offering quality legal training, the school offers a spacious modern cafeteria, seminar and conference rooms, modern lecture theatre with public address system, hostel facilities with self-contained single and double rooms with flat screen television sets among others. These facilities may be hired by the general public when they are not in use by students.
