The Ghana Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (GIALS), headquartered at No.1 Freetown Link, Okponglo Junction, in Accra, Ghana, is a non-profit organisation that was foundered by the late Professor Stephen Offei, with the aim of enhancing training and capacity building in all aspects of the law in Ghana. Part of its mission is to work with universities, the legal profession, industry, civil society organisations, and the community, to develop programmes of research, consultancy and teaching with focus on social, economic and sustainable development.
GIALS has also been working closely with the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) in London.
