Initiatives & Campaigns
Access to justice is a high-profile issue in Kenya. However, many citizens do not know their rights or understand how the criminal justice system works.
There is generally low awareness of government reforms that are improving coordination and transforming the administration of justice, including new policies and other measures.
The NCAJ, in the execution of its mandate, has processed numerous justice sector Bills and developed several policies including Bail and Bond Policy Guidelines, Handbook on Combating Illicit Trade, Sentencing Policy Guidelines.
Currently, through its seven committees, NCAJ is undertaking various far-reaching reform initiatives in the administration of justice.
