The University of Nairobi Law Journal (UNLJ) is a student-run journal dedicated to promoting a culture of research and writing, as well as, fostering productive dialogue among legal scholars on a wide range of topics. It is published and peer reviewed both by students of the Faculty of Law and independent reviewers, and amalgamates the contemporary scientific research produced by members of the faculty, legal practitioners, and students amongst a wide array of scholars in Kenya and beyond.

The UNLJ does not however confine its published works to set rigid themes only in the legal realm. It approaches contemporary social issues from an interdisciplinary approach through intersectional themes.
