Ghana Law School cancel Exams Paper Over Suspected Leakage
The Ghana School of Law examination has canceled their examination paper scheduled for today over an alleged leak.
A copy of the Civil Procedure examination paper is said to have been shared on some social media platforms at the time it was planned.
However, it is suspected that questions for another subject written on Thursday, July 14, also leaked and will be canceled.
The body which supervised the Law School exams came under huge criticism following the failure of some 499 students who sat for the entrance exams.
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.
The GLC explained that the students failed to meet the requirements for admission and for that matter they not be admitted into the institution.
However, the student deny the decision of the GLC and argued that they met the requirements.
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.”
The A-G proposed three alternative solutions from which the Council could decide.
The GLC was directed to grant the 499 deferred admissions 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 prove their admission into the Law School for the 2021/22 academic year.
