Mount Kenya University, Parklands Law Campus is fully accredited by the Commission for University Education (CUE) and the Council of Legal Education in Kenya to offer programs in Master of Laws, Bachelor of Laws, and Diploma in Law.

The programs seek to equip law students with broad-based skills and knowledge that are applicable both to Kenya and the international legal arena.

The participation of our university, alongside schools of law from four universities from Rwanda that include University of Rwanda, University of Kigali, INES, and UNILAK will provide law students with a platform to interact and learn from diverse legal backgrounds,” explained Nelly.
