Legal Profession Requires Hard Work, Commitment to Excellence – CJ to New Lawyers

The Chief Justice, His Lordship Justice Anin Yeboah has called on new Lawyers to have a firm commitment to excellence and an unbending zeal for hard work to succeed in a demanding legal profession.  


“I wish to remind you from the onset that the distinguished profession you are joining is a demanding one which requires a firm commitment to excellence underpinned by an unbending zeal for hard work. Your success at the Bar cannot be perceived in purely monetary and material terms only and I say this with great emphasis because the legal profession is not a gold mine”, he said.

Justice Anin Yeboah was speaking at a mini call ceremony at the Law Court Complex in Accra, to enroll 95 new Lawyers. He exhorted them to abide by the ethics of the profession in order to have a more enduring success that would impact positively on society, whiles appealing to them to take Court Assigned Briefs to help the needy. 

“Take Court Assigned Briefs at the Bar to help the needy. Do not let the Legal Aid Commission be denied of your services as young practitioners”, he said.
Justice Anin Yeboah further advised them to go by the professional charging fees and not to overcharge their clients, especially for services that had not been rendered.
