Law School Exams Paper Cancelled Over Suspected Leakage

Published

The body conducting the Ghana School of Law examination has cancelled a paper scheduled for today over suspicions that it leaked hours before the paper.

A copy of the Civil Procedure paper is said to have been shared on some social media platforms prior to the time it was scheduled to be written.

Meanwhile, it is being suspected that another paper written on Thursday, July 14, also leaked and may be cancelled.

The body which oversees the Law School exams came under huge criticism following the failure of some 499 students who sat for the entrance exams.

Admission of 499 students

The 499 law students, who were denied admission into the Ghana School of Law for allegedly failing the entrance examination, were admitted in March 2022.

This was after a series of agitations and debates between the students and the General Legal Council (GLC), the Attorney-General and Parliament over their supposed failure.

Prior to their admission, the GLC explained that the students failed to meet the requirements for admission hence, its decision not to admit them.

The students, however, refuted the decision of the GLC and argued that they met the required threshold.

The President requested Godfred Dame to make “the necessary intervention to the General Legal Council, on behalf of the 499 students, to address the issue and advise that the students be admitted into the Ghana School of Law.”

Subsequently, the A-G proffered three alternative solutions from which the Council could choose.

The GLC was directed to grant the 499 students deferred admission into the Ghana School of Law with effect from May 2022 or admit them in November 2021.

The final option was for the GLC to conduct a special examination in November 2021 to allow the 499 students to justify their admission into the Law School for the 2021/22 academic year.
