The principle objective of the KLRC as contained in Section 3 of the Act is to:Keep under review all the law of Kenya to ensure its systematic development and reform
Since its establishment over two decades ago, the Kenya Law Reform Commission has been unable to realize its full potential.
Consequently, it has not influenced the process and pace of law reform in Kenya to a marked degree.
