Prof. Justice Willy Mutunga


RRP: KES 400

This is the inaugural issue of the Kabarak Law School Occasional Paper Series, featuring the inaugural lecture by Professor Justice Willy Mutunga. In this publication Professor Mutunga interrogates the intricacies of what he calls a radical legal education, questioning the very foundations of legal education and asserting a clear transformative mission for law teachers, an argument woven in a captivating personal narrative, rooted in his life journey from his childhood village to his tenure as Chief Justice of Kenya and President of the Supreme Court of Kenya. Professor Justice Mutunga masterfully navigates the complex interplay between law, society, and culture, offering profound insights into past events and their enduring implications for the future. With meticulous attention to jurisprudential trends at risk of fading from memory, this compelling discourse revives forgotten knowledge and reignites intellectual debates in the realm of legal education. This is a fitting opener to the Kabarak Law School Occasional Paper Series, which intends at showcasing scholarly production in comprehensive monographic treatments of precise legal inquiries.
