The Law House, which took about 23 years to finish, features state-of-the-art facilities such as offices, conference rooms, libraries, and a canteen.

However, The Law House according to Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame, “represents a giant step towards realising the dream of a modern public legal service consisting of 12 storie, ten stories above ground and a two-tier basement for a car park, a model for efficiency of the use of public land.”

During his keynote speech, the Attorney General affirmed his dedication to modernizing the legal service, highlighting the necessity for an operational, digitalized work environment.

He announced plans to operationalize an integrated information management system and establish a modern electronic law library. As he noted, “We cannot have a modern legal service without a fully functional digitized working environment… A complete electronic management of all records at the office is non-negotiable.”

He also highlighted the need to strengthen the office’s litigating capacity, particularly in international arbitration and cases in foreign courts and tribunals. He noted that the State has achieved significant success in international arbitrations, emerging victorious in all awards given in the past four years.

He stated, “We have shown that when given the opportunity, the black man is capable of managing his own affairs.”

“The commissioning of the Law House marks a significant milestone in the development of the legal sector in Ghana. The Attorney General’s vision for a modern public legal service is seen as a crucial step towards enhancing the quality of legal service delivery in the country.

“In addition to the good number of offices for state attorneys, it boasts of a vast conference room, a canteen, two libraries, rooms for pupils, interns and researchers, kitchenettes, and a big space on the 10th floor for parties.

“The Attorney General’s facilities include a conference room that can seat about thirty people, two specific suites for two deputy Attorney Generals, a study and a room for their assistants,” General Yeboah Dame stated.
