KENYA Summer  2015 Preparations Underway 
 Kenya: 2015 Training - Wildlife Trafficking - Planning in Progress

Lawyers Without Borders Ninth Annual (2015) Kenyan Trial Advocacy Program wrapped up with both lawyers and attendees completing the training of 50 judges without incident.  Slightly different from our larger programs in the past, the training program contained an entirely judicial training team who worked with 50 Kenyan Judges.   

The program featured LWOB signature  modules that addressed the impact of new laws and their implementation in the context of a trial in addition to the overall framework of the training which hones trial advocacy skills through a full mock trial. LWOB uses its own customized adaption of the NITA-style  "learning by doing" method.   Fifty percent of LWOB trainers have themselves been trained in the NITA method. Topics this year included advanced corruption, money laundering and terrorism.

In the interests of ensuring security, the program was scaled back this year, but expects to resume at full capacity in 2015.  The goal of turning over responsibility for lawyer training to the Kenyan Judicial Training Institute and several in-country NGO's in year nine, with modest support from LWOB's pro bono international volunteer lawyers is well underway.
