Among the reasons why Daystar University students were involved in the demonstration was because the institution had been given funds to offer a law degree which was yet to be done. The institution has finally been given a go-ahead by the Council of Legal Education (CLE) to offer Bachelor of laws (LLB) degree programme.
“The Council is pleased to inform you that Daystar University School of Law has been licensed as a legal education provided pursuant to the provisions of the Legal Education Act and the relevant regulations for a period of five years from the date of this letter,” said CLE CEO Dr J K Gakeri.’’
However, in a press statement, the Daystar’s corporate affairs Manager Damaris Kimilu said that the programme would have limited spaces and would only admit 60 students per year.
The Daystar University School of law will be located next to its Nairobi campus. The institutions would, however, ensure that they offer support services in research, training and advocacy.
