Hi, my name is Veronica Kanyara. I hold a Bachelor of Law from the Catholic University of Eastern Africa and a Postgraduate Diploma in Law from the Kenya School of Law. I was admitted to the Bar in Kenya in 2017 and I’m an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya currently practicing in a mid-level law firm in Nairobi as an Associate. I have a keen interest in Land reforms and property rights, employment law and labour related issues and women's rights and empowerment. I also volunteer at Students for Liberty , an organization that seeks to promote ideas of Liberty and empowerment. I look forward to interacting with like-minded individuals and experts in this field, to not only exchange ideas but to learn and offer my experience as well.
