Christine Ofosu-Ampadu has achieved the great feat of being called to the Bar in three different countries in five years. This means she is qualified to practice law in these three countries.
She was recently called to the Ghana Bar on October 1, 2021; and was previously called to England and Wales Bar in 2016, and the New York Bar in 2020.
Reacting to this achievement, she said: “Believe that you can. Believe that it is possible. Work and strive at it with everything you’ve got. Understand that failure is part of the process.”
An enthusiastic, personable and self-motivated individual, Christine has professional experience in Criminal Prosecutions, Courtroom Advocacy, Multi-Jurisdictional Legal Knowledge, and a particular interest in Criminal Law and International Criminal Justice Issues.
Christine is an alumna of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree (BSc) in Land Economy in 2011.
She also holds an LLM in International Law and International Relations and a First Class LLB Degree from the University of Kent in the United Kingdom.
Christine pursued her Bar Professional Training Education (BPTC) at Nottingham Trent University, UK. Her remarkable achievement was her ability to secure pupillage as an International Student, after completing her BPTC – a very rare occurrence.
A skilled advocate, she worked as a Crown Prosecutor with the Crown Prosecution Service, Nottingham UK, where she prosecuted a wide range of criminal cases.
In February 2018, she was an Observer at the United Nations Youth Assembly at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
