Law students to demonstrate over mass failure Oct. 7

Students of the Ghana School of law have announced they will embark on a demonstration  Monday October 7,2019 over the persistent mass failure recorded by students during entrance exams to the school.

It comes after poor results were registered for the third consecutive time by students who are seeking admission to the school.

This year, only 128 students out of the staggering 1,820 candidates who sat for the exams could pass.

In a statement announcing their decision, the students body said they have also resolved to form an association of past Presidents of the school to press home their concerns.

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

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

Below are details of the statement

The following decisions were taken at the meeting mentioned in the previous update.

  1. The Executive Council of the Ghana School of Law SRC, immediate Past Presidents of law students’ associations of some law faculties and other student leaders have resolved to form the National Association of Law Students.
  2. All communications and press releases will be issued under this name so we can communicate a united front to the establishment.
  3. We will be demonstrating on Monday 7th October, 2019. We shall present a petition to the President of the Republic.

While we prepare to demonstrate, we are all encouraged to post on all social media platforms about our plight using the hashtags #OpenUpLegalEducation and #RedMonday
