University of Ghana on Thursday morning held a virtual congregation ceremony for final undergraduate students of the School of Law and students who took supplementary examinations at the University of Ghana Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.

The ceremony was necessary for these students as they need to have their certificates in order to continue with their professional training, starting from August, 2020.

The University resolved to hold this year’s July congregation virtually following restrictions on social gatherings because of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Here are the top talking points from the ceremony

Road cleared for others

University of Ghana, by holding a virtual congregation ceremony, became the first major public university to hold a virtual congregation in the country. With restrictions on social gatherings, other tertiary institutions are expected to hold virtual congregation ceremony for graduating students. For management of the University of Ghana, Thursday’s ceremony was a good opportunity for it to test run the idea of a virtual congregation for small groups of graduating students.

Fantastic seven

Thursday’s ceremony saw seven students graduate with first class honours. The number of first class students from the Law School this year is an improvement of what was experienced last year, making it the highest number of persons to be graduating with first class honours since the Law Faculty became a full-fledged school in the 2014/15 academic year. These students are Prosper Batariwah, Vanessa Alabi, Esmeralda Akorfa Afenyo, Emmanuel Dei-Tumi, Seth Doe, Emmeline Ziwu, and Amanda Nutakor.

Amanda Nutakor

Graduating with FGPA 3.84, Amanda Nutakor was the Valedictorian for the July Congregation. She also made history by becoming the first law student from the University to graduate with FGPA 3.8+ since the revision of the University’s grading system in 2012.

Third class category

Of the 88 students who graduated from the school of Law this year, just one graduated with third class honours.

The numbers

According to the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Thursday’s ceremony graduated 133 students of the School of Law, Medicine and Dentistry; a figure comprising 88 students of the School of Law and 45 students of the School of Medicine and Dentistry.
