Meet Ashesi Alumna lawyer Enid Marful-Sau, enrolled into Ashesi in 2003, she was excited about the prospects of studying Business Administration, but admits that she had always loved law. “I had a good interest in law, but I needed a first degree before I could go on to study it,” she says. “When I visited Ashesi for the first time, I found it inviting. Everyone seemed warm, and I loved how positive the environment felt. After that visit, I knew I was applying…..

Enid did two years of study at the Faculty of Law, and another two years at the Ghana School of Law. After graduating and being accepted onto the Ghana Bar Association, Enid went on to work at Ghana’s Attorney General’s Department (Cape Coast), where she did her pupillage. A year later, she enrolled into a Masters in Maritime Law programme at the University of Southampton Law School, where she sat in classes with Ghanaian judges and Navy personnel.

“I really enjoyed that class, and I remember talking to the professor about doing a bar conversion course and coming back to Ghana to practice,” she says. “However, my thesis supervisor was so impressed with my final project, on finance, that he encouraged me to consider a Masters in that area. I graduated from Ashesi really torn between law and finance.”

“Working on a lot of rape, murder and robbery cases, meant I would go to sleep afraid of the possibility that the people I was prosecuting could have me followed. I had to learn to overcome that fear, because the work I was doing was incredibly important.”  Full story here
