The ODPP is collaboration with the US-based Lawyers Without Borders to establish a prosecutors’ training institute in Kenya. The process has kicked off with a training of trainers for ODPP prosecutors held in Nairobi.

In her opening remarks, the Secretary Public Prosecutions Mrs Dorcas Oduor said that she was looking forward to a prosecutors’ training institute of its kind that would offer customized training, which does not exist currently in the country. “I am optimistic that the knowledge gained from the training will benefit all stakeholders and will enhance service delivery in the justice sector”.

Lawyers Without Borders team led by Hon. Justice Ann C. Williams, Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, said that the approach to the collaboration would be three-fold namely; establishment of a pool of trainers, establishment of a training institute and training of prosecutors on counter-terrorism and complex cases.
