Professor Charles Barnor, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of UPSA, has hinted of management’s preparedness to partner with the ECOWAS Court of Justice in the areas of practical lawyering and moot courts, especially in trans-national law and adjudication.

The strategic partnership will seek to deepen the UPSA Law School’s ties with international and sub-state institutions in Africa and further enhance the knowledge of the court’s work as well as its role among law students and lawyers.

It would also open new frontiers for student engagements with the sub-regional Court as well as the overall training of the next generation of lawyers who are steeped in the culture and jurisprudence of the Court.

Prof. Charles Barnor made these known at a special event held in honour of Hon. Justice Edward Amoako Asante, President of the ECOWAS Court of Justice who paid a special working visit to the UPSA Law School on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

He indicated that the management of UPSA was looking forward to tapping into the opportunity of building strong ties with the ECOWAS Court in areas that would inure to the overall benefit of its students both within and outside the academic spheres.

Prof Barnor said UPSA was built on the values and principles of practical scholarship and the Court’s nascent relationship with the university fits into that philosophy of training students who are alive to the evolving laws and legal institutions of their environment.

He, therefore, pledged management’s determination to work together with the Court to make this dream a reality.
