NEW PUBLICATION on Amicus Curiae and the Constitution


FRIEND OF THE COURT & THE 2010 CONSTITUTION: The Kenyan experience and comparative state practice on amicus curiae

“The publication of this book on the definition, status, and role of an amicus curiae (a friend of the court) is greatly welcomed. It will fill a big gap in the understanding of the legal profession (including the Judiciary) and the public on the role of the amicus. While acknowledging the specificity of each legal system, but also conscious of the recent practice of exchanges of legal doctrines and interpretation among states, the editors and authors of the book introduce its readers to comparative jurisprudence.

The analysis presented in this book will provide a much-needed resource for the judiciary and the legal community as the friend of the court assumes its vital role in Kenya’s judicial process.” Prof. Yash Pal Ghai
