The Seminar afforded the platform for seasoned lawyers and judges to share their knowledge and experiences on how law students can successfully complete their studies and make it into the Ghana School of Law.
Justice Amadu Tanko’s speech to the students was pivoted on numerous tips on how to become a successful student including spending hours after class to prepare personal notes, reading ahead of the class, and active participation during class among others.
