The Bachelor of Laws is an inter-disciplinary academic field devoted to the examination and analysis of the rules and institutions established by society to promote justice and order. It examines legal systems, the functions of law in society, and the formal rules of law together with how they are shaped by political, economic and sociocultural forces. Upon graduation, a student will have been adequately prepared to enroll in the professional bar certification programme at the Ghana School of Law.

Real-World Application

A common misconception is that careers in Law are limited and studying Law can only lead to litigation in the courtroom. In reality, though, opportunities for Law graduates are vast. As Law gives insight into the legal systems on which society functions, there is an ever-present demand for professionals with legal background in a wide variety of settings such as healthcare, banking & finance, insurance, tax administration, real estate, consulting firms, general management, international business and the public sector among others.
