The Faculty of Law at GIMPA presents an ideal setting for the pursuit of legal scholarship and training of would-be lawyers. Within the period of its existence, GIMPA Law has quickly emerged as a preeminent center of learning, emerging among the cluster of Ghanaian law schools as a school of choice.
Our rigorous standards and tested pedagogies prepare our students for an increasingly competitive legal educational environment and a complex legal marketplace. The liberal atmosphere prevalent within the school presents a congenial environment for students to fully achieve their potential and advance nascent talents in the law. With our deep belief in the efficacy of practical lawyering, GIMPA combines a tradition of advocacy and moot courts in which students are encouraged to participate in mock trials and local and international competitions. In this vein, I proudly congratulate our team who have just qualified to represent Ghana at this year’s Jessup competition in Washington DC.
As we begin yet another calendar year, we at the law school are inspired by the smooth transition our country has enjoyed and we are buoyed by the promises that this bodes for our nation and commonwealth of our people. The rule of law which epitomizes our democracy should challenge all institutions of legal training and GIMPA Law is positioned to advance the frontiers of good governance through critical legal scholarship.
We welcome our continuing students back from the yuletide and into the new year as we forge ahead in the common spirit of learning and discovery.
