Admit 499 Failed Students To Law School— SRC President

The Students Representative Council (SRC) of the Ghana School of Law (GSL) has thrown its weight behind calls for the General Legal Council (GLC), the body responsible for regulating legal education and the legal profession in the country, to admit some 499 students who have been denied admission to the professional school.

The President of the student body, Mr. Wonder Victor Kutor, said an audit conducted by the SRC on the 2,824 candidates who sat for the entrance examination revealed that the school should have admitted a total of 1,289 students rather than the 790 students who were deemed to have gained admission.

Making a case for the 499 students at a news conference in Accra yesterday, Mr. Kutor said some of the students obtained more than 50 per cent cumulatively in marks, adding that “they ought not to have been deemed as failed”.

“We call on the GLC to reconsider its decision and to consider the 499 candidates as eligible for admission into the GSL,” he said.

He further revealed that the SRC would submit the names of the 499 students to the GLC through the Director of Legal Education at the School of Law for consideration.

Context

As far as this year’s entrance examination is concerned, a student must score 50 per cent of the cumulative mark in both sections A and B, which is made up of 40 and 60 marks respectively.

It is the case of the SRC that the 499 who had 50 per cent or more cumulatively must be admitted whether or not they met the 50 per cent threshold in each of sections A and B.
