DEAN’S MESSAGE

kofi abostiThe Faculty of Law at GIMPA is pleased to be able to host the conference on The Judiciary and Its Contribution to Ghana at 60: Reflecting on the Past, Analyzing the Present, Preparing for the Future. The annual conferences present an opportunity to gather a community of scholars and academics, experts, and practitioners to critically review trends, emerging developments and challenges confronting the law in specific fields.

As a school, we are convinced that the platform of a conference presents an opportunity to network in our thinking, works and strategizing as we plot to overcome existing challenges and nascent obstacles. This year’s thematic focus on the judiciary and its contribution to Ghana after 60 years of independence reflects the importance of the courts in Ghana, and what steps can be taken to strengthen this vital institution to address the legal and developmental challenges the country faces in the next few years.

I look forward to welcoming you to the serene Greenhill campus for a fruitful deliberation. - Dean Kofi Abotsi
