Introduction This work is as a result of the Group 58’s hard work and commitment to ensure that we provide a brief credible report on the court system in Kenya based on our experience in two courts our group was privileged to visit in the CBD: Kibera Law Courts and Milimani Law Courts. It represents the general views of each member in the group concerning the justice system in Kenya and the recommendations pointed out by the group that will go a long way towards the improvement of the administration of justice in Kenya. We attended numerous court proceedings of various cases in the courts, both criminal and civil in nature. There were eight pleas and four hearings in total. Most of the criminal cases revolved around; (a) Robbery with Violence (b) Defilement (c) Operating business without a licence/Failure to display licence on business premises (d) Causing grievous harm We also had a chance to attend a civil case of ACK v Wanyoro Kihoro, which was a land dispute.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
