Ghana School of Law

The Ghana School of Law (GSL) was established in 1958 and has played a vital role in shaping Ghana's legal landscape  providing essential training for aspiring lawyers.

Training Programs Offered

The Ghana School of Law offers two primary training programs: the Professional Law Course (PLC) and the Post-Call Law Course. The PLC is tailored for graduates holding an LLB degree who have successfully passed the entrance examination. Conversely, the Post-Call Law Course caters to individuals, both Ghanaian and non-Ghanaian, who have attained qualifications from common law jurisdictions outside Ghana, akin to Ghana's legal system. Upon completion of either program, graduates are equipped to practice law within the Ghanaian jurisdiction.

Campus Locations and Expansion

The main campus of the Ghana School of Law is situated in the bustling district of Makola in Accra, serving as the hub of legal education in the country. Over the years, the institution has expanded its footprint, establishing satellite campuses at prominent academic institutions such as the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, the GIMPA campus near Legon, and more recently, at UPSA.

Membership and Affiliation

By convention, all lawyers admitted to practice in Ghana are automatically inducted as members of the Ghana Bar Association, reinforcing the institution's integral role in the legal fraternity of the nation.As GSL continues to evolve and adapt to the changing dynamics of legal education, it remains steadfast in its mission to nurture and empower the next generation of legal luminaries, thereby contributing significantly to the socio-economic development of Ghana.
