HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF EACH PROGRAMME OF STUDY.

Post-First Degree Bachelor of Laws(LLB)
The proposal for the conversion was first put forward and discussed several years ago. The suggestion was again made by the Academic Board in 1992 when it considered the Inter-Faculty Committee Report to Advise on Plans for the Development of the University and the 4-year degree Curriculum (The Acheampong Report).
The new programme was to be of 2-year duration and was to allow students to have depth and range in their first degrees and free them to concentrate on Law subjects during the post-first degree programme.
The Faculty submitted to the Academic Board, a proposal to convert the the existing LLB programme at the time, the 4-year first degree to a Post-First Degree Bachelor of Laws with effect from the 2000-2001 academic year.
LLM Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa
This is a joint programme run by the Faculty of Law, University of Ghana and a consortium of African Law Faculties, coordinated by the Law Faculty of University of Pretoria, South Africa. Applications for this programme are received and processed at Pretoria. They attended seminars, conducted researches and wrote dissertations. As part of the programme they are also attached to some human rights organizations in Accra.
LLM/M.PHIL in Human Rights and Humanitarian Law
An important component of the strategic plan of the Faculty is the development of postgraduate programmes that have relevance to the economic direction of the country. The programme has been introduced for the 2007/2008 academic year.
