Pentecost has inducted fresh law students into the study of Bachelor of Laws (LLB). This took place on Friday, 24th June 2022 on the University’s main campus in Sowutuom, Accra.
In his welcome address, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua said the ceremony is a landmark in the University’s history. He congratulated the inductees and asked them to be committed to the academic requirements of the university and the Faculty of Law in particular. He added that the University will do its best for the faculty to train lawyers who are intellectually outstanding, morally sound and be able “to practice law for the law-giver, our God.”
In delivering the keynote address, His Lordship Justice George Kingsley Koomson of the Court of Appeal enumerated three areas he said are critical for a successful legal career. HLJ Koomson mentioned building strong networks, discipline and mastering appropriate Information Technology (IT) skills. Speaking further, the respected judge challenged students, training institutions and practicing lawyers to integrate contemporary IT skills into their teaching, leaning and practice of law. This he said is necessary because in the future cases and many activities in the legal field could be done online.
On his part, the Dean of the PU’s Faculty of Law, Mr. Ellias Kodjo McDave charged the students to be discipline. He also tasked them to commit to high moral standards which will and translate that in their professional practice when they eventually graduate.
Pentecost University currently runs the LLB programme on regular and weekend bases.
