breaker tripping

Any time I turn on the kitchen light, from either switch, it trips a breaker.

What would cause this please?

A short between hot and ground or hot and neutral.
Did this just all of the sudden start or did you do some work on the circuit?

Actually, it is in a house that my client just purchased, so I don't know the answers to that.....

Then some investigation is required. Not much can said with the little info you provided.
