By Clement Edward Kumsah

279 newly qualified Lawyers including NDC's National Communication officer aspirant, Sammy Gyamfi were on Friday, October 5, 2018, called to the Bar.

The induction ceremony for the newly qualified lawyers was held at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Speaking at the Induction ceremony, Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo called on the new lawyers to uphold the right values of the profession.

“Integrity and good character are of paramount importance in the legal profession. These are qualities cannot be counted, and yet they are of the greatest importance. Stated differently, a lawyer should not be distinguished by his or her wig and gown but rather by his or her ethical conduct, language, etiquette, knowledgeability, professionalism, etc." 

It was students of the GIMPA and Accra Main Campuses of the Ghana School of Law that boycotted the exam when they realized that two of the questions had absolutely nothing to do with the subject.
