Ghana’s Parliament has passed a resolution for the General Legal Council to compel the Ghana Law School to admit the 499 students who sat for the 2021 entrance exams and passed in accordance with the marking scheme as advertised.
This follows a motion moved by deputy minority whip Ahmed Ibrahim, fine tuned by first deputy speaker who was presiding Joseph Osei-Owusu, and repeated by Effutu MP and deputy majority leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin.
499 students who were denied entrance into the Ghana Law School are in court challenging the decision arguing the marking scheme as advertised was changed after the exams.
After putting the question for adoption of the resolution, first deputy speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu ordered the Attorney General Godfred Dame to ensure the resolution is carried through by the Ghana Law School.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Nicholas Mensah Abodakpi has adjourned the case in which some ‘failed’ LLB students have sued the General Legal Council and the Attorney General.
Though the 499 students were expected in court today, only 142 showed up.
When the case titled “Daniel Sackey and 142 others vs the General Legal Council” was called, the Attorney General requested for a short adjournment to file certain processes.
Patricia Ayirebe Acquah, Assistant State Attorney told the court that, she has spoken to all the parties and have agreed for a short date.
Lawyer of the Applicant Martin Kpebu, and Nana Yaw Ntrekwah for the General Legal Council, all corroborated that position.
Justice Abodakpi said “with the consent of the parties and their lawyers this case would be adjourned to Nov 9, 2021.”
