The Judicial Service Is Resuming A Shift System. Full List Of The Courts Starting..

The Judicial Service says effective March 25, 2024, eight selected courts will begin a pilot of a Court Shift System pointed towards “optimizing the use of existing court resources to reduce the volume of cases before the Courts.”

“The rationale for the Court Shift System stems from the fact that, findings from a physical count of dockets undertaken in all Courts nationwide demonstrated that a number of identified Courts have colossal caseloads with some more than 600 forthcoming cases,” a circular to staff of the service explained.

The eight courts piloting the shift system are;

High Court’ 1′, Adentan
High Court ‘2’, Adentan
High Court 1, Amasaman
Circuit Court, Weija
District Court, La
District Court, Teshie
District Courts A&B, Madina
High Court, Nsawam

The morning shift runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. while the afternoon session will be from 2:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
