Judges Need Quality Lawyers To Deliver Quality Judgments – CJ

By on

Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo has tasked member of the  Bench, the Bar and the Judicial Service to continue to work together towards the delivery of justice in the country  as the 2018/2019 61st Legal Year commences today, Monday, October 8, 2018.

All the superior courts comprising of the High Courts, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court are all expected to resume sitting following a legal vacation between August and October 1, 2018.

At a Special Church Service for the opening of the  61st Legal Year in Accra on the theme “Quality Justice Delivery: A  shared responsibility, the Chief Justice said “without quality lawyers, quality judges can still come to the wrong decisions.”

“Quality lawyers need quality judges to ensure that justice is done. And without a quality judicial service, all other efforts will come to naught,” she stated in her message to them.

“In the light of this, I wish to urge all of you to view our duty as a collective one. We may sit in different chairs and places in the courtroom, but our duty is singular one-to ensure that every person who comes for justice is given a fair hearing and each case is heard and decided on its merits and that alone.”

She reminded them not to lose sight of the previous theme “Quality judges, Delivery Quality Justice” since “this is the commitment anchored in the belief that the Bench as the arbiter of dispute, has to be of the greatest quality for us to achieve our collective goal of ensuring that we retain and boost public confidence in our service and the integrity of our results.”

Chose able men to deliver justice

The Most Rev Charles G Palmer-Buckle, Archbishop of Cape Coast and Apostolic Administrator of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra who delivered a sermon  said able men and women should be chosen to dispense justice and such trait should go with the fear of God.

He  urged that the service should not be an empty rituals service but one that should crafted in practicality.
