PHOTOS: Law students protest over mass exam failure

Ghana law students have embarked on a protest, today October 7, 2019, to demand reforms in the legal education system.

The law students marched from the Law School in Makola to the Jubilee House to present a petition to the president.

The demonstration is as a result of the mass failure recorded in the recent entrance exams of the Ghana School of law, where only 128 students out of 1820 passed.

“We believe that, the next point of call is to hit the street and call on the presidency to intervene in this matter. Every law in this country based on Article (58) is supposed to be implemented by the President. We believe that the Attorney General will fully be minded to say that there will be change if there is enough advocacy,” Nii Senpe Adokwei Cudjoe, leader of the Coalition for the Reform of Legal Education stated.
