A Deputy Attorney-General & Minister of Justice, Ms. Diana Asonaba Dapaah has initiated discussions with the Gamey and Gamey Group, the leading ADR training and consultancy firm, for a possible collaboration for an advanced ADR training for State Attorneys.

The objective of the training is to enhance the use of ADR mechanisms in the management of cases by the Attorney-General’s Department, with the ultimate aim of reducing the caseload.

The discussion on the training was held when the Chief Executive Officer of the Gamey and Gamey Group, Mr. Austin Gamey, called on the Deputy Minister today, to deliberate on ways of promoting ADR practice in Ghana.

“We are ready to collaborate to help train more State Attorneys in ADR practice,” she said.

Mr. Gamey, in his remarks, assured the Office of the Attorney-General of the necessary support and cooperation, adding that such training would enable the Attorneys to be equipped with advanced skills for quality ADR practice.

He was optimistic that the increased engagement of the Office of the Attorney General in the use of ADR mechanisms, would help to promote mass adoption of ADR by more public and private organisations, and the citizenry in general.

Both Ms. Dapaah and Mr. Gamey agreed that because of the acclaimed advantages of ADR mechanisms, particularly negotiation and mediation, it is essential for nations to intensify the use of ADR.
