The Annual Colloquium, attended by judges of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, High Court, Employment and Labour Relations, as well as the Environment and Land Court, will discuss service delivery in the Judiciary under the broad theme of sustaining Judiciary transformation in line with the blueprint launched by Chief Justice David Maraga in January.


Among key issues the judges will discuss are recent Legislative Amendments in EDR and other aspects related to handling election petitions in courts and election technology law. Other topics will be emerging jurisprudence on reproductive human rights; transgender and intersex issues; litigating hate speech, admissibility of digital evidence and emerging issues on extradition and human trafficking. There will be presentations on the electronic filing (e-filing) of cases and electronic case management, among others.
