Kenya School of Law (KSL) has ordered 21 law graduates to go back to secondary school before they can be admitted to take the bar exam in Kenya.

The 21 graduates were found to have not met the qualifications required by KSL for those seeking to become advocates of Kenya’s High Court.

Kenya National Qualifications Authority (KNQA) found that the students had also not met the minimum qualifications for studying law according to the country’s standards.

Having gone through the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the scholars were required to have attained three principals of C in their final exams to qualify for a law degree programme.

KNQA established that some of the students were enrolled to law degree programmes with only one principal

Director General Juma Mukhwana stated that with such grades, the students should only have been enrolled for a diploma before advancing.

One of the graduates is said to have completed the Uganda Certificate of Education but had not proceeded to A-levels, yet they joined a university and graduated with a law degree.
