The government has officially commissioned The Law House, a ten-storey edifice in Accra, to serve as the new office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice.

The building, adjacent to the High Court complex, was commissioned on Monday, June 10, 2024.

The project, which began in 2001, was initially expected to be completed in May 2004 but was terminated and re-awarded in January 2023.

According to Godfred Dame, completion of the Law is a model for the efficiency of public lands.

“It will house the three divisions of the offices of the Attorney General ie., the civil division, the prosecution division and the city drafting division.

“In addition to the good number of offices for state attorneys, it boasts of a vast conference room which the GBA can use occasionally,” he added.

The Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame, speaking at the commissioning pledged to ensure that all regional offices of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice are housed in at least three-storey buildings, ending the practice of operating from makeshift structures.

Chief Justice Gertrude Torkornoo, while acknowledging the importance of building courts, emphasised the need for dedicated resources towards legal education reforms and other projects to enhance justice delivery.
