We will accept no barriers to legal education – NUGS

0

The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has said it will stand up to what it describes as unfair processes being deployed for the conduct of the upcoming Ghana Law School Entrance Examination.

Since the publication of the admissions procedures, many have criticized the law school for not disclosing a qualifying pass mark that prospective students should achieve in the entrance exam.

The General Legal Council (GLC) has also required prospective students to sign an undertaking that prevents them from requesting a re-score of their papers and/or a review of their grades.

NUGS President Dennis Appiah Larbi Ampofo, in a press release dated August 3, 2022, said the directive fails to promote transparency in law school admissions processes and leaves room for corruption and abuse of power.

He also said that students in Ghana would not accept such barriers to legal education.

The union said it “will ensure that students pass the examinations without having to submit to the forfeiture of their rights as guaranteed by the 1992 Constitution”.
