US-based Ghanaian legal practitioner, Professor Kwaku Asare has said the independent examinations committee of the General Legal Council (GLC) must come out with a clear pass mark for this year’s Ghana School of Law (GSL) entrance examinations.

This follows a notice for the sale of application forms for entry to the GSL by the Independent Examinations Committee of the GLC.

“Eligible applicants who attain the minimum threshold mark set by the General Legal Council for this particular year will be offered admission for the 2022/2023 academic year to pursue the professional law course,” the notice said.

In a series of posts on Facebook, Professor Asare has been calling for a clear cut pass mark for the upcoming exam scheduled to be written on Friday, 23 September 2022.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, 27 July 2022, Professor Asare called on eligible applicants to the GSL to avoid taking any examination without a clear pass mark.

“Avoid any exam with an unknown pass mark. Unite against the fascism,” the US-based Ghanaian legal practitioner stated.

In a subsequent post, Professor Asare said “Only Ghanafuo will tolerate a public body that hides an exam passing mark from the public.”

A separate post on Thursday, 28 July 2022, called on the Dean of the GLC to spell out a clear pass mark for eligible candidates.

“Dean Atuguba, a GLC member, should explain the GLC secret passing mark to his students.”

In 2021, 499 students were initially denied admission to GSL despite attaining the 50percent pass mark.

This led to the students petitioning state institutions on the matter.

They were later admitted to the School of law and inducted.
