Law students are marching on Monday in passionate calls for reforms to legal education in Ghana.
This comes in the wake of mass failures recorded after entrance examinations.
The march is set to begin at the main campus of the Ghana School of Law and end at the Jubilee House, where a petition will be presented to the president.
The petition will demand an immediate scrapping of entrance exams and allow other law faculties and accredited institutions to run the professional law course.
The students are also demanding an abolition of the Repeat Policy to allow students to resit any exam they fail.
They also want an immediate implementation of the recommendations by Parliament, especially the reduction of the remarking fee from GH¢3,000 to GH¢500.
They also want a “full blown” investigations into the recent failure of the entrance exams and the publication of an examiner’s report.
The recent failure saw only 128 students out of 1,820 students pass the exams.
This stirred outrage among law students, instigating Monday’s demonstration under the auspices of the Students’ Representative Council (SRC).
