NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 26 – The Law Society of Kenya has established a 12-Member Standing Committee on Judicial Appointments, which is set to secure active involvement of lawyers in the judicial appointment process.

The Committee will be tasked with framing of guidelines and characteristics best suited for a judicial officer, to be used by members.

The Isaac Okero led committee will also receive views from the LSK membership on applicants for judicial appointments among other functions.

Okero, who is also the Society President, says the move will ensure that all the judicial appointments are independent and impartial, in order to sustain public confidence in the institution.
