The Faculty of Law at GIMPA presents an ideal setting for the pursuit of legal scholarship and training of would-be lawyers, legal academics, and policymakers. Within the period of its existence, GIMPA Law has quickly emerged as a preeminent centre of learning, emerging among the cluster of Ghanaian law schools as a school of choice.
Our rigorous standards and tested pedagogies prepare our students for an increasingly competitive legal educational environment and a complex legal marketplace. The liberal atmosphere prevalent within the school presents a congenial environment for students to fully achieve their potential and advance nascent talents in the law. With our deep belief in the efficacy of practical lawyering, GIMPA combines a tradition of advocacy and moot courts in which students are encouraged to participate in mock trials and local and international competitions.
Apart from its prominent position as the school of choice for aspiring law students, the GIMPA Faculty of Law has also established itself as a leader in legal research and knowledge dissemination. The Faculty of Law’s journal – GIMPA Law Review – is one of the leading law journals in Ghana. The fourth volume of the GIMPA Law Review published selected conference papers presented during the 2016 international conference on the International Criminal Court and Africa hosted by the GIMPA Faculty of Law.
Through the seminars, policy papers, and research of the African Centre of International Criminal Justice and the African Centre on Law and Ethics, the GIMPA Faculty of Law has reached domestic, continental, and global audiences of students, lawyers, policymakers, and the general public. The Faculty of Law will continue to assiduously maintain and further the frontiers of excellence that have become its hallmark in teaching and learning, research, and service to the domestic, continental, and global public.
