Strathmore University will Friday launch a Sh1.73 million postgraduate law programme targeting emerging segments such as oil and gas, corporate tax and international financial regulation.
The 18-month master’s programme which is set to begin in January will enroll practising advocates and other experienced legal practitioners.
“The programme is designed for experienced lawyers and legal practitioners who wish to expand their knowledge and expertise without interrupting their careers,” says the Strathmore School of Law. The course also focuses on intellectual property and international crime.
Its cost is more than three times the Sh518,500 that the University of Nairobi charges for a postgraduate law degree.
Strathmore says it expects its list of applicants to include experienced lawyers, in-house counsel, judges and government officials. Others expected are legal practitioners, policy makers and graduates with a minimum of two-year work experience.
The University of Nairobi, Kenya’s premier law teaching institution, has focused its postgraduate course on science and technology, corporate governance, government and democracy, and public finance.
