JSC concerned by indisciplined lawyers

30 January 2014, 11:41 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - A 27 member bench of senior Judicial Service Commission (JSC) lawyers led by Chief Justice, Willy Mutunga has raised concerns over cases of indiscipline by some of their legal professionals.

Mutunga noted that there is need for the senior counsel to mentor their juniors who seem to acquire legal education from institutions with serious disciplinary crises in the profession.

"We have a crisis in our high education and legal training, and a review of this state of affairs should occupy the Senior Bar. I think it is priority if we are to rescue this profession from ignominy," said Mutunga.

"I was shocked last year when I attended a Law Society function and the rowdiness and indiscipline that I witnessed was breathtaking and unprecedented. We cannot run a profession that is increasingly becoming distinguished for its bad manners," he warned.

Mutunga stated that it was high time the Senior Bar evolved to emerge as a feedback or Peer Review mechanism for the transformation work that the Judiciary is undertaking.

"Having been in the corridors of Justice for many years, you have a vantage view of events and developments, and the Judiciary would be eminently richer if your thoughts were made known to the leadership," Mutunga noted.

He urged the senior lawyers to intervene in matters of administration of justice beyond the mere practice or teaching of law.

Chairman Committee of Senior Counsel of lawyers, Amos Wako concurred with Mutunga's call to intervene in the judicial matters affecting the nation stating that this will help avoid any emerging constitutional crises.

Wako assured that they will restructure the Counsel in three months to conform to the required standard.
