The Ghana School of Law (GSL) is an educational institution in Ghana for training lawyers. The school is the only one that provides training for law graduates in the Barrister at Law program.
The Professional Law Course is designed for Law Graduates who have obtained an LLB degree and have passed the entrance examination. On completion of this course the graduate is qualified to practice law in Ghana. Until the Ghana School of Law was established in 1958, all lawyers in Ghana were trained abroad, almost always at the Inns of Court in England. By convention all lawyers admitted to practice in Ghana become automatic members of the Ghana Bar Association.
