The next in the hierarchy of courts in Ghana is the Court of Appeal. Just as the name implies, the Court has the jurisdiction under the constitution to hear and decide appeals from any judgement or order that is made by the High Court or any of the Regional Tribunals. In terms of composition, the Court consists of a Chief Justice and, at least, 10 other Justices.

According to the constitution, every lower court is expected to follow whatever decision is made by the Court of Appeal on any issue that relates to the law. This is in accordance with article 136 (5) of the constitution of the Republic of Ghana.
