learned lawyers in the country.

responsible for upholding, maintaining and consolidating the constitutional
values of democracy, rule of law and the independence of the Judiciary.

Mr Mba noted that, it
would be an honour to the memory of Justice Vincent Cyril Richard Arthur
Charles Crabbe for Ghana to set up the Senior Advocates, which should also
acknowledge eminent past and present legal practitioners.

He noted that, the
Ghanaian legal landscape is dotted with accomplished legal experts, therefore
the setting up of the Senior Advocates of Ghana would provide legal a platform
for practitioners and others, who needs counsel to consult.         

The Senior Advocates
of Ghana should be the equivalent of the rank of Queen’s Counsel in the United
Kingdom.

similar designations such as Senior Counsel, State Counsel, Senior Advocate,
and President’s Advocate.
