Ghana internship 2019: Report

Ghana Internship Report
By Hannah Wilson

In November 2019, I was lucky to be afforded the chance to spend three weeks in Ghana and undertake an internship at the Supreme Court of Ghana, funded by the Commonwealth in England Barristers Association. The time I spent in Ghana was a fascinating, stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable experience, through which I was able to gain an insight into the day-to-day functioning of the Ghanaian judicial system. I also made use of this time to gain a further understanding of the work currently being carried out by both state and non-state actors to ensure the promotion and protection of the rights of women and girls in Ghana.

This report seeks to present a description of my activities whilst in Ghana, as well as a summary of my findings.
