Dr Martha Gayoye is a socio-legal scholar, with a strong commitment to empirically grounded research that advances social justice. She is an advocate of the High Court of Kenya, having trained at Moi University and subsequently the Kenya School of Law/Council of Legal Education. She has an LLM in International Development Law and Human Rights, and a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) both from the University of Warwick, School of Law. Martha has more than seven years of legal professional experience in Kenya. Before commencing my PhD studies, she had worked for the Government/public service in Kenya for six years at the Commission on Revenue Allocation, lectured at Mount Kenya University School of Law, and consulted for the Disability Caucus for the Implementation of the Constitution (concerned with the rights of persons with disabilities in the Constitution). She also worked briefly with the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights before my LLM studies. Her professional legal experience, therefore, lies in constitutional and public law, public finance, devolution, and human rights. Martha's established networks are the Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA), the African Studies Association of the UK (ASAUK), the Law and Society Association (LSA), Law and Development Research Network (LDRN) and the International Society of Public Law (ICON-S), in which she is active in the African constitutionalism cluster.
