Whether in court or at the office, lawyers and Judges should refrain from showing too much skin, Mr. Anthony Forson, National President of the Ghana Bar Association has said.

“Bare arms are generally frowned upon in the office and never appropriate in court. Skirts or blouses should always be bottomed so that cleavage is never revealed.”

Mr. Forson was speaking at the GBA Webinar held at the Law Court Complex in Accra on Monday under the theme: “Enhancing National Cohesion: the Essence of free, fair and Responsible Electoral Process.”

According to him, hair and makeup should also be conservative.The GBA President said “bare legs are never acceptable in court and neither are open toes shoes. Anything flashy such as large gaudy earrings or sandals are also inappropriate.”

He said female lawyers should always wear dark suits with trousers or knee-length matching skirts.
Mr. Forson noted that the legal profession remained one of the most conservative concerning work attires adding that being “flashy was not allowed.”

He said court attire for male lawyers in the absence of formal robes, should always consist of a dark colored suit that is a tie and properly buttoned shirt.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
