Foreword From the Chairman
Weaved through the pages of this Strategic Plan is a bold promise that we, Kenya Law, are making. Understanding our role as the agency through which Kenya’s robust, indigenous, patriotic and progressive jurisprudence will be monitored, reported and also packaged as a product for export to other jurisdictions, and acknowledging our social justice obligation to provide public legal information that is open and accessible, we will be the gold standard by which law reporting and access to public legal information is measured. The people of Kenya, from whom our mandate is derived, the letter and spirit of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 and the Judiciary Transformation Framework requires nothing less of us.
The essence of our renewed sense of obligation is captured in our new slogan “Where Legal Information is Public Knowledge”. We have come to an enlightened understanding of our mandate and make a commitment to not merely be a provider of public legal information but the people’s fountain of knowledge and understanding of the law for the promotion of the rule of law and the advancement of a civilized society.
We have renewed our minds and rededicated ourselves to the national values and principles of public service set out in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 and we have re-engineered our systems and processes to exceed the expectations the people, the Judiciary, our partners and our stakeholders. The essence of this renewal is expressed in a new brand identity - KENYA LAW – and more elaborately set out within the pages of this Strategic Plan. If we fall short of this promise at any time between 2013 and 2017, then this Plan will have come to naught.
Dr. Willy M. Mutunga, D.Jur, S.C., E.G.H.
