The first class degree spot appears to be one which has been dominated by men over the years, but in the University of Ghana law school, some four ladies have proven their mettle.

Meet Abena, Lydia, Parella and Hamida who are with the graduating Law Faculty class of 2019.

This class, over the weekend, made history by producing as many a five students who bowed out of the nation’s premier university with first class honours in Law.

Out of the five, four are women.
