Established in 1958 by Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the Ghana School of Law was the first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa and continues to be the leading law school in the region, serving students from other Commonwealth countries as well.

The students who benefited from the scholarships expressed gratitude to their benefactors, emphasizing that the support came at a time when many students were facing challenges in paying their fees and registering for the 2022/23 academic year examination. They also praised the director and the school’s management for their consistent support towards their well-being and academic progress.
