A few months ago, he collaborated with his colleague Daniel Akuoko Darkwah Jnr to write an article on “Law Practice in an Age of Artificial Intelligence” published in the Ghana School of Law Students Journal 2021 (page 53).

The article explored the emerging trends in AI and presumed that AI would not replace lawyers, contrary to the fears of many legal practitioners. It will instead play a key role in optimizing productivity.
