     YOUR DAUGHTER CAN NOT BE A “LEGAL SCHOLAR”
     
    Speaking of logic, what do you think of the information by a commentator in
    last week’s Weekend Star that is a “legal scholar”?

    No, your daughter’s learning is not what is in question. What I doubt is only
    whether her scholarship is also “legal”. For that presupposes that some scholars
    are illegal.

    Do not grin because I know of truly illegal scholars all over the world. Many
    scientists clandestinely conduct stem-cell research even in American states
    which have slapped a ban on such research.

    No matter how benighted the statute is, all law-abiding citizens must agree
    that such scientists are illegal scholars.

    But at no time has your daughter needed any legal licence to study law. That is
    the difference between your daughter as a “legal scholar” and your daughter as a law
    scholar.

    The adjective legal describes things and activities which are permitted by
    the law. And Kenya legalises studies into many more subjects than law.

    That is why — no matter if you specialise in history, biology, mathematics,
    literature or economics — you are a legal scholar because you possess the
    social or political or legal right to pursue one line of knowledge or another or
    several or even all.

    In short, all university dons and all their students are legal scholars. But
    — I reiterate — this does not mean that they are all studying law.

    It means merely that none of their scholarly activities contravenes any of
    our laws. Thus daughter can be described as a legal scholar only to the extent
    that she is law-abiding in his studies.

    Concerning her academic field, however, she is either a student of law or a law scholar. and there is a difference between the two !

    Kahii Kogi!

    Thanks for the lessons.
    I quite agree that she is a law scholar. On the other hand, she is also a legal studies scholar I believe.
