The International law Institute conducted a capacity building seminar on Judgment Writing for the Public Private Partnership Petition Committee of the Republic of Kenya. The training took place from May 29th to June 1st at the Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort in Naivasha, Kenya.

Taught by ILI Senior Advisor Don De Amicis, the seminar focused on the competencies, regulations, and decisions of a PPP Petition Committee as well as the structure, style, and substance of judgment writing. Other sessions covered the relationship between an administrative tribunal and the judiciary, as well as the constitutional, legal-substantive, and procedural rules for judgment writing. The committee members also participated in experiential exercises in deliberations and writing a judgment, as well as several plenary discussions.

The committee promotes procedural fairness and transparency with its initial members Chairman James Muruthi Kihara, Isaac Bondet, Paul Karekezi, Jackline Kimento, and Charity Muya-Ngaruiya.
