MS SERWAH - NOTARY PUBLIC
BTWSC Co-ordinator Sworn In As Notary Public in Ghana
Beyond The Will Smith Challenge (BTWSC) Co-ordinator adds Notary Public to her Legal resume:
On 11 February 2010, Ms Serwah joined her learned friends back home as fifty Ghanaian Lawyers were sworn in as the latest batch of new Notaries Public. The ceremony which, took place at the Chief Justice Court in the capital city Accra, was the first in three years.
Before the formal presentation of the certificates, Supreme Court Judge, His Lordship Justice WA Atuguba, standing in for Chief Justice Georgina Wood, reminded the new Notaries Public of the high level of trust and integrity expected of them in discharging their duties.
A Notary Public must have at least ten years experience as a practising lawyer and must be of high moral character and proven integrity. His or her duties include drafting and notarising documents such as contracts which, are recognised in international courts. SEE HERE for full Ghanaian article.

They are well respected in the community and have become Mentors to many young people in their area.
