Fundamentals in Ghanaian Law


Post-LLB Top-Up Programme

Our Fundamentals in Ghanaian Law (FGL) Top-Up Programme is an extension of our existing Top-Up programme for LLB law graduates.  It is an excellent preparatory course for Ghanaian LLB graduates or holders of equivalent law degrees from universities in other common law jurisdictions (such as the U.K., U.S., Canada, and Nigeria) for entry into the Ghana School of Law.  Our FGL Top-Up Programme is an ideal route for eligibility to sit the entrance examination for the Ghana School of Law.  It equips LLB holders from universities in other common law jurisdictions with the required proficiency levels in academic skills and fundamental Ghanaian law subjects required by the General Legal Council for entry into the Ghana School of Law.   The FGL Top-Up programme covers all the core and elective subjects required by the Ghana School of Law as follows
