80 Law students from the University of Nairobi have moved to court challenge decision by the institution to conduct online classes and exams.

The students want the court to stop the institution from going on with online classes.

According to them, the decision to commence the online classes was arrived at without consideration that some of the petitioners reside in remote areas  and therefore have no access to reliable internet services.

It is their argument that they enrolled for a physical-class-based program and not online or distance learning.

Further, they have it that the UON through its senate arbitrarily without consultations and pubic participation embarked on the online academic program.

“The online program has no access to face to face consultation with the lecturers, has limited access to the library and access to physical based program facilities that it is only fair that the fees is reduced,” the students argue.
