Coast based lawyers pose for a group photo during a capacity building workshop on the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) regulatory framework organized by the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

The Authority has this week trained lawyers drawn from the coastal region on the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector regulatory framework, as part of wider efforts to build the capacity of the legal fraternity on ICTs.

About 40 lawyers attended the training held at the White Sands Hotel, which is offered in collaboration with the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the UN specialized agency for ICTs.

The event facilitated by both international and local experts focused on ICT policy and regulation, electronic transactions and the emerging frontier of cyber security.

The training which ended yesterday seeks to empower and equip Kenyan lawyers with the requisite knowledge to enable them represent clients and present well articulated arguments in court in disputes within the ICT sector.

The next capacity building will target another set of lawyers is scheduled for November this year.
