The Sierra Leone Law School now housed at the Special Court (photo) in the West of the capital Freetown is currently hosting a new batch of students who are preparing for the Bar Exam to join the crop of lawyers in Sierra Leone.

Like in all academic or training institutions, the Students have felt the need to have an executive to run their association so as to articulate their preferences, priorities, interests and serve as a liaison between the administration and they the students.

The present set of students comprises those from the West African state of Cameroon and Sierra Leoneans who studied in the United States, Nigeria, UK and Fourah Bay College (FBC) University of Sierra Leone, the first college in the British colonial West Africa established in 1827.

The new executive that now leads the Association known as the Sierra Leone Bar Students Association comprises Umar Sesay, a product of FBC as President, assisted by a female Vice President Pauline Oduwyer , a Sierra Leonean who studied in London. The scribe of the association is Randy Sallieu Bangura. He is assisted by a dynamic female Miss Fatmata Mansaray, a product of FBC. The Public relations will be handled by Almamy Mansaray commonly known as Rooney who is also a product of FBC.

The positions of editor–in-chief and editor of the newsletter of the Law School have been conferred on Alpha Rashid Jalloh and Francis Gbaya respectively, both products of FBC . They are assisted by Ashutantan Tambe from Cameroon.

The executive has resolved to host series of activities prior to the expiration of their term.
