Lebanese Community awards 15 law students with scholarships
The Lebanese Community in Ghana has set up a new scholarship scheme that supports 15 students who are beginning their professional course at the Ghana School of Law.
The community is also supporting four others who are undertaking the Masters’ Programme at the Ghana Institute of Journalism.
This is in addition to a scheme that supports some students who are pursuing their degree programmes at the Ghana Institute of Journalism and the Law Schools at the University of Ghana and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Speaking at the ceremony to present the scholarship award to the 15 Ghana School of Law students, the Lebanese ambassador to Ghana, His Excellency Ali Halabi, said that the community made this move because of how important rule of law is to the Ghanaian society.
“The need for the continuity of a favourable state of law in Ghana is at the heart of the Lebanese Community. I have realised that legal education and the attainment of this favourable rule of law system are not mutually exclusive,” he said.
“This is going to be a new scholarship scheme that will include providing support to selected students undergoing the professional training at the Ghana School of Law and those undertaking the Masters’ Programme at the Ghana Institute of Journalism.”
The Dean for the Faculty of Law at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology also noted, “Every nation needs lawyers to craft laws to ensure stability and fight against the threat of terrorism. A solid legal environment will attract investors. Scholarship will help students acquire quality education to contribute to the legal and facilitate development.”
The Lebanese Community in Ghana started the scholarship scheme in 2013 when it awarded scholarships to 7 communication students in the Ghana Institute of Journalism and 15 law students from KNUST and the University of Ghana.
