The Judiciary performs this function by providing independent, accessible and responsive fora for the resolution of disputes.
Towards the definition of an image for the Judiciary, the Judiciary seeks to establish its own Coat of Arms that will be distinct from the other arms of government. 
The envisioned Coat of Arms should take into consideration the Judiciary Transformation Framework, which seeks to transform the Judiciary into an independent but complementary partner with other branches of government (www.judiciary.go.ke.)
