Private legal practitioner, Prof Kwaku Asare (Kwaku Azar) has bemoaned how the monopoly in Ghana’s legal education is affecting law students.
This comes after the release of results for the admission into the Ghana School of Law saw only 28% out of 2,824 students passed.
This means only 790 out of the 2,824 students who sat for the exams passed.
Reacting to the development, Prof Azar said the students did not fail the exams rather they were denied opportunity to study law due to lack of space at the Ghana School of Law in Makola.
He said although the number this year is an improvement to last year, the universities must sit up and create spaces for these students.

Look, we were not born yesterday. 790/2824 is only a marginal improvement over 128/1820.The whole legal education model is utterly broken down.
The monopoly must come to an end!!!The Universities must not be happy to just collect money from so many students who get a terminal LLB.
They have a responsibility to prepare the 2,034 (72%) students, who cannot be accommodated by Makola, for the Bar examination.
These 2,034 students have not failed. They have just been denied a place because Makola cannot accommodate them. The time to end this charade is NOW!
