Inaugural edition of the Riara Law Journal
The Riara Law School is pleased to publish its inaugural edition of the Riara Law Journal
focusing on the broad area of Law in a Society in Flux.
It is often observed that Kenyan society in line with that of other African countries is youthful. With this youth comes an associated dynamism. Society has evolved rapidly in the recent past both locally and globally. Norms have changed, the nature of commerce and education are changing and the law is called upon to respond evenly to these developments.
The surge of technological and other innovations in the last few decades, for example, has had major impacts on our society in an unprecedented manner. There are ongoing transformational shifts in education, health, media, business, agriculture and several other examples. In Africa, several startups have blossomed seeking to provide innovative solutions to match the needs of Africa’s people in diverse areas such as education, food production, transport, healthcare and mobile money. Governments have also taken up the use of technology and embraced e-government in service delivery through diverse platforms.
