Relief for Moi University law students as High Court suspends closure

Students enrolled at the Moi University Law School will resume learning after the High Court in Nairobi suspended the closure of the institution pending the hearing and determination of the case.

While making the ruling on Thursday morning, Justice George Odunga ordered the institution to reopened and to continue offering the program to students already enrolled.

The decision comes as a temporary relief to more than 1500 students who had paid huge fees to be enrolled for the program and will in the short-run, therefore, act as motivation.

The Commission for Legal Education (CLE) had ordered the institution to be closed after failing to meet the required threshold for teaching law in the country.

However, the University took the matter to court to block the closure while sorting out the issue.

The law students will now embark to classes until the case is heard and determined on October 30 this year.
