The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has opened it portal for admission for 2022/2023 academic year. All interested applicants should visit any Post offices in Ghana for their admission forms.
In 1970 a department of law was established in the Faculty of Social Sciences to teach land law as a ‘core’ subject in the BSc Land Economy and Management programme. Not long afterwards a combined honours degree of Economics/Law, Sociology/ Law, Geography/Law etc. was developed. The Department of Law also taught law courses in other faculties of the university.
In 2002, the university decided that the social sciences faculty must undergo modern transformation, allowing a Faculty of Law to emerge. In April 2003, the Council of KNUST approved a 4-year LLB programme, and the first cohort of LLB students were admitted into the Faculty of Law in August 2003. The Pioneer Faculty that started the newly approved 4- year LLB programme were Rev. Prof. E H Ofori- Amankwah, Professor Oswald Senedza, Dr Renee Morhe, Dr. Ernest Owusu-Dapaa, Dr. Anane, George Sarpong, Michael Alokore, JC Tarchie, Kwame Anyimadu Antwi, Albert Amankwah and Mr Addai
KNUST provides training in law and promotes the development of a distinctly Ghanaian body of law through teaching and research. The graduates of the law faculty will fulfil the manpower needs of the country as graduates of law are required not only to practise law, but to work in important sectors of the economy.
