It has been sixty years since Ghana gained independence. Within that time, there is little doubt that the legal profession has been prominent in affairs of state. It is however a debatable question if the law and lawyers have on the whole contributed positively to Ghana’s development.
There are therefore important questions concerning what role the law and the legal profession will play in Ghana’s future. The Department of Law, Lancaster University Ghana is pleased to dedicate its third annual Law Colloquium to starting a forward looking conversations about the future of the legal profession in Ghana.
Is the profession equipped, is it relevant and it is sufficiently progressive to retain an important place in national affairs and to contribute positively to the development of Ghana?
