M-Law services

As of 15th October, 2015, Kenya had a total of 7,539 active lawyers registered with the Law Society of Kenya. Clearly, the number of available legal service providers is not proportional to the demand of the society (roughly 41 Million people). As such, it leads to legal services being accessible to the economically rich and or average members of society only. It should be noted that the Advocates (Remuneration) Order 2014 provides that the least an advocate can charge for a written legal opinion is Kshs. 35,000.00. Access to legal services and justice is therefore certainly beyond the reach of millions of the poor, marginalized and vulnerable Kenyans.
