The Council of Legal Education has directed law graduates from Makerere University set to sit for their November bar examinations to have their documents certified by the institution. This is to enable their admission to the Kenya School of law.

CLE chief executive W. Kulundu-Bitonye said the students have until September 29 to submit certified documents.

The development comes days after Makerere University announced that it will recall law degrees awarded to students irregularly over the past decade amid claims of forged and altered results.

“The graduates must furnish the Council with copies of degree certificates and transcripts, certified or verified  by Makerere University  as genuine, failing which the candidates will be considered ineligible to take the bar examination,” said Prof Kulundu-Bitonye in a public notice dated September 13.
