Paralegal medical service plays a major role in protecting children right to education. Provision of adequate paralegal medical services promotes children’s education. Most studies in Kenya have been interested on health and education of children without examining influence of medical services offered by paralegals to protect children’s right to education. The entire sampling matrix yielded a total sample size of 348 respondents comprising the paralegals and recipients in the study. Questionnaires and interview schedules were used for data collection. A combination of simple random sampling technique and purposive sampling procedures were used to select respondents for the study. Descriptive analysis was produced using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) while qualitative analysis considered inferences made from views and opinions of respondents. Results showed that traditional birth attendants were the most significant paralegals, followed by NGOS and individual /private paralegals respectively. The study further found that paralegals offered quality but inadequate medical services to protect children right to education. This is due to, poor economic levels and low education. The study concluded that, paralegal medical services supplemented well the inadequate health services provided by the government, not accessible to most children.
