The Impact of open access to legal information: bridging the gap between accessibility and usefulness
The National Council for Law Reporting (Kenya Law) is a State Corporation established under the National Council for Law Reporting Act No. 11 of 1994. The mandate of Kenya Law is to monitor and report on the development of Kenya’s jurisprudence through the publication of the Kenya Law Reports; to revise, consolidate and publish the Laws of Kenya and to provide access to other public legal information. Kenya Law is a focal point institution in providing access to Kenya’s public legal information.
Kenya Law will in September 2014 play the host of the Law Via Internet (LVI) conference. Kenya Law has been a member of the Free Access to Law Movement (FALM) since 2008.This will be the first time that LVI will be held in Eastern Africa and the second time in Africa as a whole.
