Kisii University’s School of Law has been ranked the best in Kenya for the fourth successive year.

The Council of Legal Education (CLE) put the university on top of others that offer legal education in the country.

This, according to legal experts, is not a mean achievement for the university and graduates.

Newly appointed judge, Justice Dr. iur Fred Nyagaka who is the outgoing Dean of the school said the news was an indicator that the university is producing graduates who are well grounded in the discipline.

“My immediate former students (now graduates) have once again done our School proud,” he told members of ScholarMedia Digital, a WhatsApp group that brings together top notch scholars from across the country.

He went on: “This is testimony of unity of purpose and determination.”

The judge exuded confidence that as he moves into the Judiciary, he leaves a legacy of both hard and smart work and singular focus on achieving nothing but the best.

The university is basking in glory because reports that students who proceed to Kenya School of Law and subsequently into practice do notably well.

Numerous congratulatory messages hit social media for the better part of Friday.

“Kisii University School of Law catapults the university to the league of universities whose alumni remain pivotal in the development of the legal profession,” Prof. David Ongarora of Maseno University said.

Kisii University Vice Chancellor Prof John Akama said the Law School has set the right pace, which is being emulated by other schools in the university.

Prof Akama who launched his biography titled Undeterred: A Rural Boy’s Journey to the Pinnacle of Academia recently, holds this particular school close to his heart.

In the book, he writes, “… Kisii University’s School of Law has managed to outsmart law students from other universities in the Council of Legal Education examinations.

For instance, in the 2019 CLE examinations, our Law students took position one, beating law schools from pioneer universities….”

He reveals that despite the law school being fairly nascent, students have stood their ground and done well over the last few years.
