Renowned Ghanaian legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw, has asked government to cut down the number of Law faculties in Ghana to ensure an efficient legal education system in Ghana.

The private legal practitioner noted that the decision to create law faculties in all tertiary institutions in Ghana has contributed to the porous legal education system.

Maurice Ampaw who blamed the National Accreditation Board for the menace, accused the institution for lowering the standard in the legal educations system and allowing every institution to roll out LLB programs at the faculty level in the various institutions.

“We can cut down the number of law faculties by looking at the infrastructure, a university whose structures such as lecture theaters, Libraries does not meet the standard of the National Accreditation Board should be made to stop offering Law at the faculty level,” he said.

He made this statement while speaking to host of Atinka FM’s AM Drive, Ekourba Gyasi Wednesday morning.

Commenting on the swearing in of Justice Anin Yeboah as the 14th Chief Justice of Ghana, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw noted that former is an astute Judge and is more than capable of holding the office.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday, 7th January, 2020, sworn into office Mr. Justice Anin Yeboah as the 14th Chief Justice of Ghana.

At a ceremony at Jubilee House, the seat of the nation’s presidency, Akufo-Addo said “His association with the beautiful game saw him become Chair of the Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association, with the success of his work earning him a place on the adjudicatory chamber of FIFA, the global body responsible for the management of world football.”
