Welcome to the University of Ghana School of Law.
For my colleagues and me, our first call is to provide a safe physical and emotional environment for the nurturing of your bodies, your minds, your spirits, and your souls.
A global village means that the legal education we expose you to should include international experiences at home and abroad, and we are rolling out a series of programmes in that direction, ensuring that as many of you as possible are able to travel to the best universities in the world for various academic programmes, allowing for a more potent exchange of knowledge and culture. With the effective use of technologies, we can also collaborate with these centers of learning around the world from right here.
Our second charge as your teachers and administrators is to ensure that you have a memorable experience here at the School of Law; the type of experience that will make you not just productive citizens and excellent lawyers, but also willing donors to the School of Law, contributing thousands of dollars every year to make your alma mater great. Your success is our success, and your success is important to each and every Faculty and Staff Member who works here. “Learning the Law” is hard enough. We should not make your lives any harder.
Our School of Law is the best in Ghana, and one of the best in Africa, and even in the world. We are working assiduously and expeditiously at improving the student experience by creating a research, conferencing, publications, and outreach hub here at the School; and aggressively fundraising, all within a refreshed setup for the good governance and administration of the school, and aimed at putting the experience, interests, and welfare of our faculty, staff, and students first.
UGSoL is not perfect. No institution is. Indeed, no person is. But you have my commitment as Dean, and the commitment of the Faculty and Staff that we will always strive to make it better.
