The National Association of Law Students (NALS) has taken to Accra’s streets to protest the failure of the Ghana School of Law entrance tests.
The candidates are blaming the General Legal Council (GLC) for their inability to get admission following the implementation of a new quota system.
The pass mark for the entrance exams has always been 50% in both sections, but for this year’s exams, the rule has been changed, so candidates have to score at least 50% in both sections.
On Wednesday, October 20, students dressed in red and black held posters with messages conveying their dissatisfaction at Accra’s Black Star Square.
‘Stop traumatizing law students,’ ‘We did not fail,’ and other sentiments were written on their signs by several of them.
The aggrieved students stated that they were unaware of the new rule before taking the tests, amidst drumming and shouting.
They’re also calling for changes to the country’s legal education system.
