Dear Final Year Law Students and LUG Law Alumni,
Congratulations on completing your LUG Ghana LLB degree! We are aware that many of you will be applying for professional law courses in a variety of institutions in Ghana and elsewhere for the 2021/22 academic year. The processes and timelines for applications differ from institution to institution but they all require LU Ghana and/or Lancaster UK to provide documentation and information, which can sometimes be complex and time consuming.
In order to facilitate the process and avoid unnecessary delays in providing the required information and documentation we are writing to inform you of the processes and deadlines that you will need to know and meet in order for Lancaster/Lancaster Ghana to provide documentation in support of you application. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU DO NOT MEET THESE DEADLINES WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SUPPORT YOUR APPLICATION FOR THE 2021/22 ACADEMIC YEAR.
