    The University of Nairobi (UoN) has invited contributions from former law students to build a Sh1.8 billion multi-storeyed twin complex at its Parklands-based law campus in Nairobi.
    Speaking at the launch of the UoN School of Law Alumni Chapter and the unveiling of the Alumni’s Agenda 2020, Chief Justice David Maraga urged all legal professionals who studied at the university to donate funds to help build the tower that will enable the school offer more courses.
    “I am told the School of Law plans to build a tower following the precedent set by this magnificent one (22-floor UoN Towers). I was here in 1974 as an undergraduate law student and I challenge all legal professionals to demonstrate our support to that project.
    “As alumni, we must look beyond our personal, professional and institutional obligations and come up with ways to make a greater contribution to our alma mater and to the society. This may be by offering scholarships to needy students, funding programmes and extending free legal aid services to those in need,” he said.

    School of Law dean Kiarie Mwaura said the proposed building would help meet the schools future needs of the undergraduate, masters’ and post-graduate diploma courses as well as professional legal courses on emerging issues.
    “We are having lawyers travelling to South African universities to undertake specialised courses in oil and gas, mergers and acquisitions, trust law, anti-laundering among others which could be offered locally if we had space for such courses,” he said.

    Prof Mwaura invited legal professionals to sponsor the establishment of specific facilities such as lecture and seminar rooms as well as particular academic chairs that will be named after them.
    The planned tower will house additional lecture and seminar rooms, a library, offices, conference centre, an e-learning resource centre, indoor sporting facilities and ample parking space.
