Kenya

The Kenyan Christian Lawyers Fellowship (KCLF) is led by Anna Mbugua. There are KCLF chapters in the following towns: Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Machakos, Meru, Kitale, Kisumu and Eldoret. The fellowship works with law student fellowships at the two universities that offer law degrees: the University of Nairobi and Moi University in Eldoret. The main fellowship activities vary from chapter to chapter, but focus is on Bible studies, fellowship and prayer meetings.

In Nairobi and Mombasa, the chapters operate legal aid offices representing indigent clients in prison and also provide legal and civic education to the community. In some of the more established branches like Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru and Nairobi, carol services are held in December as a means of spreading the gospel to their law colleagues.

KCLF stands out as Advocates Africa’s leading example in the area of legal aid programs and legal representation for those in prison awaiting trial. The fellowship's partnership with LCF/UK in the Christian Legal Education Aid and Research (CLEAR) project continues to have a great impact in Kenya.

Recently the KCLF launched a mediation centre, making it one of the first in the Advocates Africa network to do so. (Estimated members: 185)
