Kwasi Danso Amoah Graduates with LLM from Harvard Law School

On the 14th of October 2021, shared the story of Kwasi Danso Amoah, a young Ghanaian man who had gained admission to Harvard law school to study for an LLM. Today, news reaching us is that Danso Amoah has graduated from his program.

In the previous story, we highlighted that Danso was initially a science student but diverted to study law. He is an old student of St. Augustine’s College in Cape Coast where he studied General Science. Over there, he was given the nickname “Figures” by his mates, a name that has stuck to this day.

He was elected as Head Boy for his year group and after graduating in 2012 with his West African Senior Secondary Certificate from the secondary school, Kwasi was admitted to study for an undergraduate degree in law at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2016.

During his time there, he began his Theresa Joseph Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to improving the literacy rate among children in Ghana. He was also a prominent figure in the university’s Student’s Representative Council election of 2016 and the ensuing petition and judicial proceedings where he served as counsel to the main defendant.

We wish him all the best in his future endeavours and send our warmest congratulations his way.
