The University of Ghana School of Law in partnership with Speech Forces, with support from Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa invites all public and private senior high schools in Ghana to take part in the 3rd edition of the Ghana Secondary Schools Moot Court Competition. The competition will take place on 21stand 22nd of October 2022 in Accra at the University of Ghana campus.

This competition provides a unique opportunity for students to develop their research, writing and oral advocacy skills as they endeavour to come to grips with some of the constitutional issues that are presently facing our country. It aims to create greater awareness in schools and communities in Ghana about the constitution and the values that it embodies through active participation. The aim is also to encourage talented young people to consider pursuing a career in law.
