Objectives of SALAR Law Journal

At its conceptualization, the Journal sought to provide the means for students to develop their research and writing capability by producing academic articles of publishable quality. Throughout its publication history, the Journal has sought to provide diversity in academic debate by producing themed journals and genera editions that canvass the contemporary issues swirling around the legal academy.

For each Edition of the Journal, the Board strives to seize on the contemporary legal issues permeating discourse within the legal academy to enhance students appreciation of their issues and facilitate the attainment of a greater grasp of the intersectionality of law and society.

Amongst the central tenets of the Board is to push towards greater adoption of Open Accessibility of our works and sustainable publication that have minimal carbon footprints. In line with SALAR’s vision and the University of Nairobi mission of advancing intellectual debate amongst the academy, our journals should serve as a platform for mentoring young intellectuals and nourishing their thirst for informed debate on various legal issues. Debate and intellectual discourse can only be facilitated and enhanced when academic publications are easily accessible to the academy, it is our belief that this goal can be best attained by availing our journals online to reach the widest possible audience.
