Share this

Thousands of law students are expected to today, Monday, 7 October 2019 hit the streets of Accra to demand reforms in legal education in the country.

This follows the mass disqualification of over 1,600 law students who sat for the last entrance exam for admission to the Ghana School of Law.

Only 128 passed out of the 1,800 who sat for the exam, representing a pass rate of seven percent.

Members of the Law Students Association says the mass failure is a deliberate attempt by the General Legal Council (GCL) deliberately deny citizens access to legal education and make it a preserve of a few.

The demonstrators will later present a petition to the Presidency.
