Seminar: The Advocates Remuneration Order

Date: 7th December 2017
Venue: (LRC) Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Lang'ata South Road Karen 

 

About this Seminar:

That the Advocates Remuneration Order has been the subject of much formal and informal discourse is not in doubt. But critical ethical and policy issues on advocates’ remuneration refuse to go away, and constantly appear to defy resolution, if a review of the jurisprudence from the courts and an analysis of the legislative history of the Advocates Remuneration Order is anything to go by. 

Whether it is actual or perceived undercutting arising from service level agreements, the legality of the Remuneration Order itself in the light of competition law, the limits of the advocates lien and its recognized potential to damage a client’s cause, the fairness of remuneration, the procedure on recovery of fees or the powers and discretion of the taxing officer, the jury is still out on many aspects of the Advocates Remuneration Order. The courts have not made life any easier with their consistently inconsistent pronouncements on many aspects of the remuneration order.
