August 29, 2019
Kenya Law has today, the 29th August 2019, officially launched its Strategic Plan for the period – 2018 to 2022 with a focus on providing access to public legal information.
Speaking during the launch at Crown Plaza, the Chairman of the board of the National Council for Law Reporting, Hon. David K. Maraga, E.G.H. Chief Justice/President of Supreme Court of Kenya lauded Kenya Law for making significant advances in tracking Kenya’s jurisprudence and disseminating public legal information over the last five-year planning period.
The key accomplishments include the publication of 12 Kenya Law Reports and the revision and update of 498 chapters of the Laws of Kenya both of which facilitated judicial officers, legal practitioners and members of the public to understand and advance their rights and obligations. This freely accessible data also facilitated government institutions and officers to review, implement and enforce laws and regulations.
“This Strategic Plan guarantees accessibility of legal information to the public. This plan is therefore an embodiment of our collective promise to our stakeholders on the service delivery standards that they should expect from Kenya Law.” Said the Chief Justice.
Building on the previous years’ success, Kenya Law aims further to re-align resources available to the institution with key strategic objectives under three thematic areas;
1) Access to public legal information
2) Organizational sustainability, and
3) Corporate identity and visibility which will be the drivers to achieving its mandate.
Kenya Law CEO Mr. Long’et Terer, in his speech, promised that; as a leading legal resource frontier, Kenya Law will strive to guarantee accessibility to legal information to Kenyans of all walks of life by making it available in various forms and through varied media.
Mr. Terer also noted that the Strategic Plan is a commitment and a responsibility which the Council will gladly implement as the objectives that have been set are well thought out and achievable. “The plan is an embodiment of a collective promise to the stakeholders on the service delivery standards that customers should expect from Kenya Law.” He said.
