Ghana School of Law advocates for immediate infrastructure improvement


Management of the Ghana School of Law has voiced concerns regarding the stagnant infrastructure development at the institution since its inception.

They lamented the insufficient facilities to accommodate the growing student population, often resorting to renting public address systems for events at high costs.

Director Nana Yaw Barima Kodie Oppong appealed to the government and philanthropic organizations for assistance in expanding the school’s infrastructure to facilitate the training of more lawyers.

“If you come there, the rest of us have managed to squeeze from stones to be able to even maintain what we already have which was constructed in 1958 during the reign of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and has seen very little expansion in terms of infrastructure until recently, when we had just a block or so added to it.

“Otherwise, it was a school that was originally meant for about 96 people. We have had to rent from even recently established universities. The ego alone is so bruised that our own children are now providing facilities for us as if we are homeless.”

Alban Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, emphasized the necessity of revitalizing the Ghana School of Law.

He assured a joint effort with the President to tackle this issue.

“I really felt sad and my spirit went low when I visited the law school recently upon their invitation to come and deliver a paper on ethics in legal practice. And I saw that there had been no change since I left the school in 1982.

“And with all these rich lawyers in very high positions, how could our school be that low? Isn’t it a shame? We need to do more. And so I have been putting a bit of pressure on His Excellency the President for us to set the ball rolling.”
