Licensing of Lawyers

It is mandatory that all lawyers wishing to practice within the jurisdiction of Ghana, first obtain licenses issued by the council before they commence practice. Failure to do so constitute an offence under the Ghanaian law.  The council has put in place a mechanism for licensing lawyers and has been assisted by the Ghana Bar Association in implementing this licensing regime.  Lawyers seeking to  secure licenses or renew the same should call at the offices of the Ghana Bar Association and go through the necessary processes or download the form in the link below.

it should be noted however that all licenses issued are the preserve of the council and accordingly the council reserves the right to issue, suspend and cancel licenses issued to Lawyers.
