Mr. Chris Adomako-Kwakye is currently the Head of the Commercial Law Department at the Faculty of Law. He graduated from the University of Ghana with a combined degree in Law and Political Science and proceeded to the Ghana School of Law where he obtained his Qualifying Certificate in Professional Law (Barrister-at Law Certificate). He also has an LLM in Commercial Law from University of Bristol in the UK.
At the Faulty of Law, Mr Adomako-Kwakye mainly teaches Intellectual Property Law, Law of Taxation and Banking & Insurance Law. His areas of academic research interest are Natural Resources Law, Revenue Management and the Legal Aspects of Poverty Alleviation. Consequently, some of Mr. Adomako-Kwakye’s publications have addressed the development of a viable commercial law regime in Ghana, effective revenue management and tax administration in Ghana and the need for a paradigm shift in negotiating natural resource contracts. In 2011, Mr. Adomako-Kwakye spent six months as a Fulbright Scholar with the Boston University School of Law, in Massachusetts, U.S.A., where he undertook research on Ghana’s Petroleum Revenue Management Bill which has since been enacted into an Act.
Apart from his academic work, he is also the Managing Partner at Adomako-Kwakye Law Consulting a Kumasi law firm that specialises in Commercial, Corporate, Land and Estate practice. He has consulted for several districts assemblies including the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly which engaged him in 1996, and recently in 2014, to draft its bye-laws.
