Law students go to court to stop upcoming entrance exams

  |   Ghana News

A group of law graduates calling themselves the Concerned LLB Graduates, are going to court to seek an injunction to halt the upcoming entrance exams for potential students of the Ghana School of Law. This comes after the General Legal Council declared that it would hold the exams for the prospective students despite a petition by the group to scrap it.

The group petitioned the General Legal Council to facilitate automatic admissions into the Law School by scraping this year’s entrance exams slated for July 14, 2017, saying that it will amount to an illegality by the Council after the Supreme Court judgment on the matter. The group said it has decided to pursue the matter in court to seek clarity and also get the Council to cancel the examination.

Its leader, Godfred Tessu, who spoke to Citi News , said, “We had a meeting and we agreed that this coming week, we will go to court and defend our right. We are going to ask the court to place an injunction on the exam and we hope that the court will grant it.”
