The KUSOL Public Interest and Awareness Programme is largely run by fourth year law students under the guidance of a lecturer. The aim of the programme is to respond to legal needs affecting the indigent in the rural and urban poor areas of Kenya. This year, approximately 47 students participated in the programme and were divided into four groups of around 10 students per group. The students were trained on public interest law and thereafter organized legal aid clinics in different parts of the country for example Nanyuki Town, Kwale, Kitui, Kibra, Kamiti Maximum Prison and Kiandutu slum in Thika. The aim of the legal aid clinics is to create legal awareness, offer legal assistance and other legal services in the above selected areas as a means of enhancing access to justice to those who would not otherwise be able to access largely due to financial constraints.

During the clinics, the students offered legal assistance, addressed the community on different legal issues affecting them and the action to take as well as facilitated the resolution of some disputes through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). For further legal assistance such as legal representation, the students referred the members of the community to the Kenyatta University Legal Aid Clinic (KULAC).

The programme received immense support from various institutions and organizations in form of Information, Communication and Education materials, tents, chairs, public address systems, lunch for the students and advocates to accompany the students. These organizations include AFCIC (Action for Children in Conflict, URAIA, Kenya Law Reform Commission (KLRC), Equality now, the County Assembly of Laikipia, Pamoja F.M (which hosted a legal talk programme that involved the students), NALEAP (National Awareness and Legal Aid Program), CRADLE, The Nubian Rights Forum and Kituo cha Sheria.
