Students of the Ghana School of Law have announced plans to hold a demonstration on Monday, October 7th, in light of the recent mass failure of candidates aspiring to attend the institution.
In a statement released Thursday by the Students Representative Council (SRC) of the institution, they reveal new measures they have decided upon to highlight the plight of students and prospective students.
To that end, a demonstration is scheduled for Monday, October 7th, during which they shall present a petition to the President, Nana Akufo-Addo.
They also announced the formation of a new nationwide student body to be known by the name of National Association of Law Students to better represent their collective interest.
The series of meetings to brainstorm ideas became necessary after the recent Law School Entrance exam, which saw the mass failure of the prospective applicants. Only 128 of the 1,820 students taking the exam managed to pass.
Prior to that, the recent Bar exams also had similar mass failures after only 64 of the 525 students passed the Bar.
This has been a trend that has been going on for years and so far no solution seems in sight to tackle this grave issue.
