COURSE OBJECTIVE

Consumer considerations and their protection are very old concepts, but in the last decade there has been a significant development in this branch of law.  From Government, Private sector and Civil Society everyone is affected in one way or another by the Consumers Right at Article 46 of the Constitution generally and specifically, the Consumer Protection Act, 2012.

Globalization of trade, market-dominated economy, information revolution and emergence of e-commerce and ICT has further enhanced this process.

A greater importance has been assigned to consumer law at a global basis, Kenya and the region. All these factors have increased more scope for research and advocacy for creating and sustaining a consumer-friendly regulatory framework. The Kenyan legal framework has also undergone a substantial change to comply with the international norms.

The subject has received tremendous importance among the contemporary legal  and other professionals fraternity in Kenya. This applies across all sectors of the economy and walks of life.

The  Government of Kenya, State Corporations, County Governments, private sector and Civil Society require training, understanding and appreciation of the consumer law in order that they are equipped to meet respective socio-economic expectations.

Against this background, the course introduce the trainees to the existing law and practices relating to consumer protection. It answers the question of quality and reliability of service as well as legitimate expectations of the final consumers of goods and services.
