The committee has been established, according to the Law Society of Kenya, ‘with a view to reforming and updating it [the Advocates Act] or making proposals for its repeal and re-enactment as a new Legal Practitioners Bill’. The Law Society, writing to lawyers, asking for their views, says that resulting ‘legislation is to take into consideration emerging challenges in the training and regulation of the legal service sector’.
