Harriett Mutenga completed her LLB degree at the University of Fort Hare in 2009. She proceeded to the University of Stellenbosch in 2010 where she completed an LLM degree wherein she specialized in intellectual property, labour law, international criminal law and children’s rights. She also completed a mini-thesis, focusing on the role of the Constitutional Court in balancing competing interests, zooming in on whether the limitation clause adequately equips this court for this delicate mandate.

Her duties were mainly centered around finding ways to promote social integration between citizens and non citizens. She then joined the Bar in 2012 and was mentored by Ayesha Tiry at the Island Group. Now in her second year of practice, Harriett remains passionate about human rights and public law. She has appeared in the Supreme and Constitutional Courts with Senior Counsel and has done a number of trial and motion matters on her own.
