Law students have won their case against the Attorney General and the General Legal Council.

The case was about the entrance exam law students write annually to gain admission to study at the Ghana School of Law.

Prince Ganaku and four other students took the case to court in 2019 after a little over 100 students out of more than a thousand passed the law entrance exam.

This brought the attention of issues regarding how the entrance exam is conducted and how the results are made public.

The case asked the court to order the General Legal Council to publish the procedures for remarking of papers among others.

Yesterday, an Accra High Court ruled in favour the law students making it a major win for the students over their seniors in the office of the Attorney General’s Department and the General Legal Council.

The General Legal Council is the body that regulates legal education in the country.
