“For the past 15 years, I have been teaching Criminal Law at the University of Ghana, whilst engaging in private law practice”, he said.
In an interview with Kwame Safa Kayi on Thursday, September 30th, 2021, the Special Prosecutor emphasized that teaching would have been his lifetime job if the profession paid.
“I can not depend on the salary from lecturing because is not enough”, he added.
The Special Prosecutor added that since the Court is the laboratory of the Lawyer, he decided to practice it alongside lecturing.
“The current state of my office will not permit to lecture because I want it to be in a better position” he said.
Kissi Agyebeng was called to the Ghana Bar in October 2003 and holds a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Ghana, as well as, Master of Laws (LLM) degrees from Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, Canada, and Cornell Law School, USA.
