Three alumni of the University of Ghana School of Law have refurbished and handed over a lecture theatre to the School of Law at a ceremony on 18th January, 2023.
The three who are also lawyers, are Mrs. Adelaide Heward-Mills (LLB Class of 1986), Moses Baiden Junior (LLB Class of 1989) and Kwesi Atta Payin Baiden (LLB Class of 1991), who as siblings dedicated the building to the memory of their late father, Moses Kweku Baiden, a businessman as a token for his exemplary life and deep interest for education and the practice of law.
The Moses Kweku Baiden Lecture Hall was refurbished to facilitate effective teaching and learning as well as accommodate the growing number of law students being trained at the school.

Mr. Moses Kwesi Baiden Jnr, speaking at the ceremony said the family were excited about the completion of the project which they believe will impact positively on the legal education in Ghana and our society.
“Although it took us a while to complete this project, we are pleased to have been a part of this impactful event which contributes to the longevity and sustainability of this great institution and the practice of law in Ghana,” he said.
Prof. Raymond Atuguba, Dean of the School, expressed his profound gratitude for the initiative and highlighted the importance of alumni’s contribution to expanding the infrastructure of the School of Law.
“This process has actually ignited an idea for expanding our premises. We have decided to use our alumni in this revolutionary process. This would allow our alumni [and other interested parties] contribute to the improvement of our structures by funding portions of the building,” he said.
Moses Nana Ewudzie Kweku Baiden Senior was born on 21st February 1922, and died in August, 2011. He founded two important schools in the Western Region – Chapel Hill and the Nest School Complex.
