The week-long event, on the theme: “In the Pursuit of Justice,” had activities that stimulated intellectual legal discussions and visits to the law courts with a view to having practical understanding of the legal system in Ghana.
A statement issued in Accra by Ms Edna Adika, the Communication Officer of LUG, said the students also had an opportunity to reach out to the less privileged within the community and to network with prominent players within the Ghanaian legal sphere.
It said the Chief Justice, Mrs Georgina Theodora Wood, during the opening ceremony, admonished the law students to develop high ethical standards and a genuine love for justice delivery.
The statement said as part of the activities the students took a trip to the Nsawam Prisons to witness firsthand the realities of the legal profession.
It said other law students visited the Beacon House Orphanage in East Legon to reaffirm the support and care of the Law Society and presented story and colouring books to the children there.
It said the Society also held its second annual students symposium with its members with presentations geared towards a proper appraisal of the legal system’s strive to do justice as well as proffered suggestions to rectify perceived shortcomings.
