[ads1]INVITATION TO LECTURE BY PROF. STEPHEN ASARE.
The Media General Group (Owners of TV3, 3FM, ONUA FM, CONNECT FM and 3NEWS.COM) respectfully request the pleasure of your company at its Maiden MG News Lecture Series, under the topic:
“MAKING SENSE OF GHANA’S SUPREME COURT RULING ON THE ADMISSION CRITERIA TO PROFESSIONAL LAW STUDIES, AND OTHER MATTERS.”
The Supreme Court of Ghana, on Thursday 22nd June 2017 gave a landmark verdict, declaring as unconstitutional the admission criteria instituted by the General Legal Council of Ghana, into the Professional Law Studies.
The ruling has not come without controversy, as several questions emerge from the judgement.
Media General News will on Thursday 29th June 2017, host a lecture by Professor Stephen Kwaku Asare (Legal Luminary, and the KPMG Professor of Accounting), to address the following issues:
▪What does the Supreme Courts’ ruling mean for the admission process to Professional Legal Studies at the Ghana School of Law?
▪Did the Supreme Court Err in Law by directing that the “unconstitutional” admission criteria should be applied to the current 2017-2018 batch of students?
▪Will the Supreme Courts’ recommendation for a quota system to be instituted for admissions into the Professional Legal Studies guarantee an unfettered right of equal educational opportunity and access to facilities?
The lecture will also address the following thorny issues;
▪The law prohibiting “Touting and Advertisement” by lawyers: L.I. 613
▪Ghana’s dual nationality law and the Constitutional protection against discrimination
▪Has the work of the Constitution Review Commission (instituted by Former President John Evans Atta Mills) been a waste of time and money?
DATE: Thursday 29th June, 2017.
VENUE: Accra City Hotel (Novotel Hotel), Accra Central
