The Robert and Barbara Kent Fellowship is a six-month fellowship that allows an outstanding law graduate to pursue research in an area of interest at SAIPAR. The fellowship was established by the SAIPAR Board in 2014 in honour of Professor Robert Kent. The Fellowship Scheme recognizes the immense contribution of Prof. Kent to legal education in Zambia. Prof. Kent served with distinction as the second Dean of the School of Law of the University of Zambia. He also helped establish the Law Development Commission of Zambia and facilitated the postgraduate education of many Zambian lawyers. The fellowship is supported by an endowment fund established by the SAIPAR Board.
