Students of the Ghana School of Law has announced that they will stage a demonstration on October 7th, 2019 to protest the current mass entrance examinations failure, ABC News can confirm.

In a joint press statement by Student Representative Council of the Ghana School of Law, the Executive Council of the institution; immediate past presidents of the Law Students’ Associations; leaders of some law faculties, the stakeholders expressed their determination to demonstrate against what they describe as attempts by the General Legal Council to limit the number of students admitted into the law school.

According to the statement, the various stakeholders have also resolved to form an association, “National Association of Law Students”, to spearhead their advocacy and welfare.

A petition will also be delivered to the President of the nation, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the recent happenings and the demands of the students.

“The Executive Council of the Ghana School of Law SRC, immediate Past Presidents of the law students’ associations of some law faculties and other student leaders have resolved to form the National Association of Law Students”

“We will be demonstrating on Monday 7th October 2019. We shall present a petition to the President of the Republic”

“We have agreed to organize a series of events in the coming week culminating to the demonstration. The SRC is currently working on a petition to outline our demands” a statement sighted by ABC News detailed.

On Tuesday 24th September 2019, the Ghana School of Law recorded another case of mass examination failure which saw only 128 out of the nearly 1820 students pass the entrance examinations.

A notice at the school indicated that more than 90 percent of the students who sat for the entrance examinations failed to secure the pass mark for admission to the Law School.

The recent exams failure has sparked agitations among a large section of students following a similar failure in the Ghana Bar exams a few months ago which saw close to 90 percent of the 727 students who sat the Bar exams failing to meet the pass mark.
