Series on 2017 Graduating Class Long Essays

Hello Blogosphere,

 We, at the Legally Speaking Blog Team, are pleased to bring you a new series on the various long essay topics of the 2017 Graduating Class of the University of Ghana’s School of Law.

With the reintroduction of the Undergraduate Law option at the University of Ghana in 2012, came the challenge of structuring a whole new four-year programme, suited to the abilities and needs of both undergraduate and graduate students of law, since both streams run concurrently. We have often joked that the first intake of students were the “guinea pigs” of this new operation.

As the second batch of undergraduate students, members of the 2017 graduating class have been given the option of publishing a thesis, 10,000-18,000 words long; a long essay. Starting from this week, we will be giving you a sneak peek into the topics being explored by the students who have opted to undertake this challenge, as well as their takes on their experiences of writing an academic thesis.

 From the mentally strenuous niceties of Jurisprudence to the practicalities of Ghanaian statutes, current and recommended, the topics raised and questions asked, present varied and relevant contributions to the world of legal literature.

We look forward to sharing with you!
