A Former President of the Ghana Bar Association, Paul Adu Gyamfi, has reiterated the need for the country to train more lawyers if a fair and just society is to be achieved.

He says the notion of a glut in the training of lawyers must be discounted, while a special fund is set aside to train lawyers.

He spoke at a ceremony to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Ghana School of Law, Kumasi.

The commemoration of the 10 years of the existence of the Ghana Law School, Kumasi brought together members of the Ghana Bar Association and old students.

Over 500 lawyers have graduated from the Kumasi campus since its inception 10 years ago.

Former President of the Ghana Bar Association, Paul Adu Gyamfi, says more lawyers need to be trained.

He suggested a special fund to promote legal training and encourage research in law.

Chief Justice, Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, revealed the General Legal Council will ensure full implementation of its legal authority.

This he said would be done in enrolling only students who obtained LLB degree from universities approved by the Council.

Meanwhile, the Kumasi Campus is challenged with lack of basic infrastructure.

The construction of a permanent site for the school has been proposed.
