Former President of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), Mr Anthony Forson has stated that training of legal professionals in Ghana ought to be tightened on the way to make certain that pleasant felony practitioners are produced.
He said the standard have to be heightened as a way of making sure that attorneys deliver their customers value for money when they lease their services.
Speaking in interview with TV3’s Johnnie Hughes on Thursday June 30, he explained that attorneys deal with the lives of humans, their properties, marriages and different topics.
If they fail to put up correct overall performance, main to defeat in court, their customers, out of overthinking, lose their lives gradually, he stated.
“Yes, there ought to be access to lawyers but relaxing the policies is in reality no. In fact, the guidelines ought to be tightened due to the fact I usually say that lawyers kill human beings every day however due to the fact the causal connection is not soo direct, people don’t see it.
“If a health practitioner treats you and he does no longer deal with you well, you die right away however if a attorney makes you lose your family heirloom, makes you lose your agency, all you do is to [wail within you], and all of a sudden die but the causal connection can not be seen through humans. Therefore, I sense the schooling have to be difficult.
“Lawyers address people’s lives , human beings’s marriages, people’s houses and people’s businesses. So the schooling need to now not be tapered down but I accept as true with that by some means the Law School must be progressive enough and open greater campuses,” Mr Forson said while he was asked for his view on criminal schooling in Ghana.
