LLB In Ghana. How To Become A Lawyer In Ghana.. May 2022

To enroll as a law student at any of Ghana’s law schools, you must first receive a bachelor’s degree (4-year duration).

If the degree is from a reputable university, it will suffice. By “recognised,” I mean that the institution must be recognized by legal schools such as UG, KNUST, GIMPA, Zenith, and Mount Crest (although there are a few private arrangements that lead to the “London Law Degree”).

Following your first degree, you can apply to one of the above-mentioned universities to pursue a law degree (LLB) (2-year duration). You may be eligible to enroll in the Ghana School of Law’s Professional Law Course after receiving your LLB (subject to certain restrictions) (2-year duration)
