    Background: THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF GHANA, MR. JUSTICE AKUAFO-ADDO OPENED THE SECOND LEGAL CONFERENCE OF THE GHANA BENCH, BAR AND LAW FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF GHANA ON MONDAY.

    THE CONFERENCE, WHICH CONTINUES UNTIL FRIDAY (9 AUGUST) IS BEING HELD IN THE AKUAFO HALL IN THE UNIVERSITY. AMONG THOSE WHO WILL SPEAK DURING THE CONFERENCE ARE THE UNIVERSITY'S FORMER PROFESSOR OF LAW, PROFESSOR WILLIAM B. HARVEY OF THE UNITED STATES.

    IN HIS OPENING ADDRESS, MR. JUSTICE AKUAFO-ADDO URGED GHANAIAN LAWYERS TO WORK TO DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING BOTH FOR THEMSELVES AND THE PUBLIC THEY SERVE.

    HE SAID THIS SORT OF CONFERENCE WAS ESSENTIAL IF LAWYERS WERE TO DISCUSS AND RECOGNISE THE IDEALS OF THEIR PROFESSION. WITHOUT THIS SORT OF DISCUSSION, HE SAID, GHANA COULD RELAPSE INTO BECOMING A PSEUDO-DEMOCRACY.
