There are plans to further expand facilities at the Ghana School of Law (GSL) to help increase its intake of law students, the Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo has said. She, however, said no matter the level of expansion of the Ghana School of Law, the General Legal Council (GLC) will not open the floodgates for the admission of students who do not meet the requirement.
“The position of the GLC remains that admission to the Ghana School of Law for the professional legal education requires that successful candidates obtain a minimum mark of 50 percent in an entrance examination administered by the Independent Examination Committee,” she said.
Justice Sophia Akuffo was speaking at an enrollment of 305 lawyers to Bar in Accra on Friday, reports Graphic Online’s Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson.
Her comment follows public concerns about the massive failures of students who sit for the entrance examinations of the GSL. Out of 1800 students who sat for this year’s exams only 128 passed and gained admission into the GSL.
