In the last decade, there have been several developments in the Ghanaian legal space. This has happened on the back of significant developments after oil discovery in 2008. We are looking to discuss these developments by understanding new insights and reveal the structures for enforcement, attempts at consolidation and proposals for reform.

1. Issues in Constitutional Law and Human Rights
2. Developments in Financial Law, Financial Regulation and Administration
