Writing is paramount, it is the primary basis upon which your intellect will be judged—in University, in the workplace, in the community, heck in life!
Writing gives you the platform to expresses your inner man, to pose worthwhile questions.

That is why it is with great pleasure and humility that I introduce to the students of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Karen Law School, the first publication of the Jkuat Karen Legal Newsletter. A platform where students have a voice on both legal and social matters affecting today’s modern and constantly changing world.
Enjoy and be educated!
