Legal Advice

Transparency International Kenya offers FREE legal advice on corruption related cases under the Advocacy and Legal Advice Centre (ALAC).

What is ALAC?

Advocacy and Legal Advice Centre (ALAC) is a walk-in, call-in and mail centre where any person can obtain free and confidential advice on corruption cases. TI-Kenya in collaboration with government commissions and coalition partners against corruption in Coast, North Rift, Western and Nairobi regions are working to empower citizens to actively participate in the fight against corruption in Kenya.


Although corruption affects Kenyans seeking public services in key sectors like water, security, education and health, research shows that many corruption cases go unreported.

Why I haven’t reported corruption related cases;

  • No action would be taken
  • I did not know where to report
  • It did not occur to me that I should report
  • Fear of self incrimination
  • Fear of intimidation

ALAC works with communities to empower them to overcome these reasons for not reporting corruption. ALAC also offers a unique opportunity for the fight against corruption in Kenya as it gives opportunity to gather data on graft incidents in various public and private institutions.

What ALAC Offers

  • Receive complaints on corruption
  • Provide legal advice on the cases
  • Refer the case to relevant institutions of government and track the progress of the complaints through the IPCRM system
