Egerton University to offer bar examinations

The Council of Legal Education (CLE) has included Egerton University in a list of institutions of higher learning allowed to administer bar examinations.

CLE Chief Executive Officer Dr. Wambua Kituku said for the first time in the country’s history, the examination that is a statutory requirement for any law graduate seeking to be admitted as an advocate in the legal profession in Kenya, will be held outside Nairobi at the varsity’s Njoro Main Campus from March 31, 2022. Dr. Kituku stated that the move was part of the Council’s effort to devolve its administration of the examination whose centres have been exclusively in Nairobi. Council for Legal Education is the only state organ with the mandate to oversee law education in the country, assess and authorize the syllabuses of universities teaching law and also administer exams for law graduates seeking to be admitted to the bar.
