Legal profession is one of the most respected professions not only in Kenya but the world at large. In Kenya, for one to practise law, you must go through Kenya School of Law. This is a nightmare to most students. This is due to the following reasons.One, the fees are too high and pose as an indirect way of saying 'there is no higher education for the poor.' The yearly tuition fee for a degree program is about Ksh. 16,000/-. In KSL the fee is over kshs. 200,000/-.While there is HELB to help needy students during their degree program, there is no HELB or any other financial help when going to KSL. As a result, the dream of practising law for many poor students are either delayed or paralysed.Another nightmare is derived from the fact that there is only one KSL despite having eleven institutions offering law degrees. It is questionable how a single institution can be able to absorb graduands from eleven institutions. We need reforms in this sector.
