The Law and Internet in Kenya training undertakes to shed light on the correlation between the Internet, the law and the state. We have taken these trainings to Nyeri and Nakuru and now we are set to have one in Mombasa as well.

During the training, participants will learn about the constitution, the legal system, the criminal law process and intellectual property rights. Other topics include confidentiality, defamation, communication laws and privacy, consumer law and social media policies among other related topics.
