ACTING DEAN'S WELCOME MESSAGE
Welcome to the GIMPA faculty of law-arguably the leading law school in the country with a tradition of promoting a critical and innovative learning of the law and the pursuit of legal scholarship. Since its establishment, the law faculty at GIMPA has quickly assumed a leadership position in legal education as well as its approaches to creating an involved and inclusive community to the learning and application of the law in a developing country and globalized environment. The faculty of law at GIMPA provides a congenial and vibrant community for preparing students to become excellent attorneys and also for those who may just be seeking knowledge in the law as corporate leaders, civil society activists and officers of international organizations.
Our faculty comprises prominent scholars and distinguished jurists from across the world whose diverse backgrounds enrich the teaching and learning of the law. In addition to the depth of scholarship characteristic of our faculty, our lecturer-student ratio is unmatched in Ghana averaging 1:25 faculty to student.
The faculty of Law is especially adept at skills training and innovative learning. This includes our extensive clinical programs, which give our students the opportunity to develop their lawyering skills while assisting live clients in a wide variety of contexts and practice areas under the supervision of our clinical faculty. We also offer a range of simulation courses, which develop legal skills and help our graduates to be practice-ready when they complete their law school training. Through years of collaboration with the Leitner Center at the Fordham Law School in New York, the faculty of law at GIMPA provides an opportunity for our students to work on joint clinical projects with students from Fordham Law School and by so doing are able to gain insights and experiences in the cross-cultural application of the law to real life problems.
To our returning students, I welcome you back to campus. I especially wish to welcome our new students to Greenhill and hope you enjoy and exploit the numerous opportunities available at the law faculty here at Greenhill. For our prospective students, we invite you to take a tour on our website and contact us for any further information you may need and we will be more than delighted to assist in any way possible.
