    1. An LLM would not guarantee you entry i Ghana School of Law(GSL) You would need to have an LLB with some fixed subject requirements,pass an entry exam and an oral interview to enter....A four year project in all ...All the best...check it out http://www.gslaw.edu.gh/index.php

    2. Hello, can you please tell me the areas of law which will be examined for the entry exams? if one has to take the specific modules needed, how long will that take before sitting for the exams. I will apply in 2013, however, company law will be the only module out of the required modules I would have taken, obviously notwithstanding the substantive module ie contract, criminal, tort, land , equity et al . Cheers. Currently in my 3rd year second semester in London.

  4. I am presently studying the one year graduate diploma in law here in UK with BPP. i intend to take two extra modules after my studies to convert my diploma into an LLB as per BBP procedure.
    (1)Is this type of LLB qualifying enough to gain me admission into the makola school of law?
    (2)is BBP one of the institutions recognised by the general legal Council?
    I did read the requirements on the makola site and one is expected to possess an LLB from an institution RECOGNISED by the legal council. what do they mean by recognised? please help me as i can not afford to pay for the bar course here in the uk after my GDL. could email me on;desouzarog@yahoo.com

    1. Dear Anon,

      If you can tell me the specific subjects you would have studied in law by the time you acquire the LLB, I would be able to answer Q1 better.

      As to Q2, I think so, but I advise you ask somebody at the Ghana School of Law directly. I could try getting the number for you.

      Yes can! You have to apply for a law degree (LLB) with your B.Ed.

  6. Hello, I'd like to know if it is possible to gain entry into Makola with an LLB acquired from Zenith College (it is a University of London external course). I've heard rumors that a person would have to do a 4-6 month course after the full 2 years taken at Zenith College.

  7. Admission to Ghana Law School in my view is very unclear. What ever advice you read online, it is very important that one makes a call to the Law School to verify before you invest heavily financially, only to realised at the last minute that your investment has been a waste.

    1. If you've successfully completed the BPTC in the UK, then surely it is advisable to stay here and obtain a pupillage despite the difficulty in obtaining one.

  20. This is what happens in the pursuance of a Profession in Law in Ghana. After graduating from the Secondary cycle education , you need a Bachelor's Degree from a recognised university, wherever . When you have chalked a minimum of at least 2nd Class Lower Division or better, you can apply to the Law Faculty at the University of Ghana for 2 or 3 years : full time or part time . And then proceed to the school of law.
