The High Court has compelled the Council of Legal Education to clear the law students from Uganda Pentecostal University to apply to the Kenya School of Law advocate training programme 2017/2018.

Justice George Odunga ordered CLE to admit the students into the Advocate Training Programm (ATP), under the same conditions as their predecessors who also qualified from the same University.

“In default of such clearance, the Kenya School of Law is hereby compelled to consider the petitioners’ application for admission on to the advocate Programme Training (ATP) under same conditions as the predecessors who also qualified from the same university” ruled Odunga J.

Justice Odunga also quashed decision by CLE declining to clear the petitioners for admission to the Kenya School of Law.

“The decision rejecting the petitioners’ application to Kenya School of Law for the academic programme 2017/2018 was unconstitutional” ruled Odunga.

The Council was ordered to refund Kshs 10,000 paid by the petitioners’ towards the Recognition and Approval of clearance or Equation of their Degree certificate.

The learned judge took issue with Uganda Pentecostal University and Law Council of Uganda.

“I particularly take issue with the deafening silence in these proceedings by Uganda Pentecostal University in light of the serious allegations levelled against it with respect to the quality of legal education being offered by the university” said Odunga.

Students welcomed the court decision.

“I am so happy, justice Odunga has gone into details and addressed all issues” said Doreen after the judgment.

The students filed the suit through Lawyer Asiimwe Fred.
