Africa Nazarene University Law School provides its students with the opportunity to become leaders in the legal field both nationally and internationally. Our all-encompassing programmes and activities are geared towards the sharpening of skills, integrity and character, rather than just the impartation of knowledge of law. In line with Africa Nazarene University’s mission and vision, ANULS is committed to providing excellent legal education that stimulates our students’ academic, spiritual, moral and social potential.
The main thrust of the Law School is to produce law graduates who are committed to the ideal that to be a good lawyer is to serve the community. Among our many goals is the pursuit of intellectual liveliness and competitiveness. Towards this end, we encourage both our staff and students to be stimulated intellectually through, among other ways, participating in public lectures, debates and conferences on current issues affecting our society; engagement in moot court tournaments and offering legal assistance to indigent persons.
Additionally, the Law School is also committed, as one of its strategic objectives, to increasing the quality and quantity of its research output. We have dedicated academics, who are research-active and leaders in their respective fields of knowledge. Above all, the geographic location of Africa Nazarene University, which hosts the Law School, makes it an environment that is conducive for learning.
The ANULS Bachelor of Laws degree programme is aimed at producing competent lawyers of character, equipped for legal practice and other law related careers. In Kenya, the LLB is the basic requirement to enter into legal practice. The Africa Nazarene University training philosophy focuses on preparing its graduates to go into the world well-prepared to meet the challenges of their time, which include personal and organizational corruption, violence, disunity, poverty and unemployment, disease, and a crisis of leadership.
The LLB programme will therefore prepare graduates to address these challenges of their time in a number of ways. First, the University Common Courses include units in Christian Ethics to provide a foundation for moral and ethical knowledge and values. Secondly, the LLB programme is structured not only to offer training in legal knowledge and skills so as to prepare students for success in legal practice, but also to prepare them for positive roles in the community through requisite and elective units.
Because of the vision and mission on which its based, and due to the needs of the African continent, the LLB programme, based firmly in Common Law, will train graduates who have the skills and knowledge to support themselves and their families, in addition to expertise and competence that enables them identify and address needs in their local and regional community.
To achieve this ANULS is committed to offering:
• Excellent Teaching and Research
• Excellent Facilities
Excellent Teaching and Research
Our teaching benefits from the dynamic research being done by our academic staff. The ANULS encourages a strong and vibrant community where effective teaching and supervision of research is a high priority. The staff at ANULS are committed to small group teaching and ensuring that staff are accessible to students. The school also has excellent moot court facilities which enable the students to practice the skills they are learning at ANULS.
The school has excellent facilities for teaching and research. These include:
• The law library located in Grace Roles Building;
• A moot court room;

ANU HOSTS AFRICA'S 1ST REGIONAL FDI MOOT COURT COMPETITIONS
In a fast globalizing world, the law on Foreign Direct Investment is continuously evolving. The greatest challenge for scholars and practitioners in this area of law is to strike a balance between the competing interests of host states with those of foreign direct investors.
Foreign Direct Investments create opportunities that Africa needs to develop her economy. To make this possible, a meshwork of international investment treaties, domestic legislation, and international investment contracts converge to define obligations between host States and foreign investors and to create internationalized procedures for resolving related disputes. The ANU FDI Moot Court Competition seeks to help future lawyers attain a practical understanding of resolving such disputes and developing skills in support of the advancement of suitable structures of arbitration.
Cognizant of this emerging need, Africa Nazarene University (ANU) through the ANU Law School (ANULS) in partnership with the Centre for International Legal Studies headquartered in Salzburg, Austria organized Africa’s First Regional Round of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Moot Court Competition that took place between 19th and 20th August, 2016.
The keynote speech was delivered by Ms. Stella Munyi, Director of Legal & Host Country Affairs Directorate, Ministry of Foreign Affairsand International Trade on behalf of the Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international Trade, Amb. (Dr.) Amina Mohamed. In her message, the Cabinet Secretary emphasized the need for arbitration and notably commended ANU’s efforts in contributing to Kenya’s conference diplomacy.
The CS asserted the significance of enhancing student understanding and interest in the arbitration processes. She stated that the Government had supported the establishment of the Nairobi Centre for International Arbitration (NICA) –a renowned seat for international arbitration.
Her sentiments were echoed by Dr. Moses Ikiara, MD, Kenya Investment Authority who observed that FDI was an engine of growth that Kenya was taking seriously in her efforts to catapult economic development under Vision 2030 programmes.
The Moot Court competition saw the spirited participation of students from over 15 Universities across the African Continent with Europe being represented by the Czech Republic.
ANU Vice Chancellor Prof. Leah Marangu urged the participants to fully embrace the workshop and leverage on it to nurture their research and advocacy skills in an effort to attain a versatile legal acumen.
The FDI Moot Court Competition closed its curtains with an award ceremony to recognize the top performing student participants. KSL Student and ANU Alumni John Nyange scooped the “Most Promising Advocate” Award while the “Best Oralist” Award went to Kenyatta University student Christopher Rozana.
Overall winners Kenya School of Law (KSL) Team Skotnikov clinched the top position and ANU Team Guillaume came in a close second. The two teams will travel to Argentina for the Foreign Direct Investments Global Rounds Moot Court Competitions on November 4 – 6, 2016.
The ANU Law School anticipates to crown the FDI Moot Court with a conference that will facilitate the presentation of scholarly papers contributing to the ANU Law School Journal – the only internationally acclaimed Law Journal published by a Law School in Kenya. The journal publishes research on international and comparative law with specific focus on Africa.

Event: Foreign Direct Investment Moot 2016-Africa Regional Rounds;
Dates: 19th to 21st August 2016;
Venue: Africa Nazarene University Law School;
Overview of the FDI Moot Court Competition
Increasing international investment, the proliferation of international investment treaties, domestic legislation, and international investment contracts have contributed to the development of a new field of international law that defines obligations between host States and foreign investors and refers to internationalized procedures (e.g. ICSID) for resolving related disputes. These disputes involve not only vast sums, but also a panoply of rights, duties, and shifting objectives at the juncture of national and international law and policy. The FDI Moot helps future lawyers attain a practical understanding of these issues. The case and hearings offer a unique forum for academics and practitioners from around the world to discuss developments – and assess emerging talents. The FDI Moot spans approximately six months each year in two phases, written memorials for claimant and respondent and the hearing of oral argument.
Africa Regional Rounds

LAW SCHOOL CAKE CUTTING
“The starting point of all achievement is desire” Napolean Hill.
These words have been evidently echoed by the ANU Law School. In honor of the school’s full accreditation on May 29, 2014, the school’s faculty and students organized a cake cutting ceremony on Wednesday November 12, 2014.
“Do not consent to defeat or lack the patience and motivation to push on.” was the message from Vice Chancellor Prof Marangu as she documented the journey and hurdles that were overcome to achieve the accreditation. She urged the students to have the same resilience and dared them to dream and overcome hardships in their journeys to hoist their flags on the highest of mountains – a reference she made to making a mark in the world.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor Prof. Reed honored the great sense of accomplishment by the Law School as the first of the Nazarene Institutions in the world to have a Law School. He pressed them to remember that their accomplishments are God ordained and directed, whilst commending the school’s faculty for their stewardship.
The School’s Dean Prof. Morris Mbondenyi and Chair Dr. Tom Kabau reminisced on the school’s journey thanking the VC, DVC and fellow faculty for their commitment into the success of the Law School.
Doreen Kiogora, a fourth year, gave a short history on the positive changes she has witnessed. She among other students displayed gratification to the school and their role in offering an impressionable academic experience.
We congratulate the Law School. Kudos team!!!
