Every year, the situation becomes more staggering.
Scores of first-degree law holders sit for an entrance exam with the hope of gaining admission into the Ghana Law School.
This is the only way they can legally practise law in the country.
However, every year the story remains the same… About 90% of the students who sit for the exam fail to make the required 50 per cent or better to gain admission.
This year a similar incident happened.
Out of the 1,820 students who sat for the exam, only 128 students passed – meaning only 128 got 50 per cent or better.
However, this got the students complaining about the injustice and the opaque nature of the admission process.
The Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo who is also the head of the General Legal Council – the institution that oversees the activities of the Ghana Law School, has said that facilities at the law school will be improved to allow for more people to be admitted in the subsequent years.
However, it seems the law students are having none of it. This morning, they embarked on a demonstration with many carrying cards to register their displeasure.
