Virtue Foundation Continues to Support Judicial and Trial Advocacy Training in Kenya

In early August of 2015, Virtue Foundation again supported the Lawyers without Borders “Support Through Trial Advocacy Training (STTAT)” program in Nairobi, Kenya. Each year, STTAT helps build capacity in global partners, through on the ground training in developing countries. This year, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, and wildlife officers were among the participants involved. The program aims to preserve the integrity of judicial process, increase access to justice for those traditionally underserved, and ensure that the right of the accused and victims are fairly adjudicated.

STTAT features experiential learning and other innovative methods that generate audience participation and improve response and retention. Such interactive learning mechanisms also include a ‘train the trainer’ component that provides high-achieving past participants with continued training. This system builds on sustainability of many of the programming objectives.
