Mass Failure In Law School, Only 128 Out Of 1,820 Passed

1 min


There was a mass failure in Ghana School of Law External Exams for 2019 in which only 128 candidates out 2,820 passed.
The examination was in two parts: two written questions and objectives.

There was a similar magnitude of failure last year.
Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo earlier this year stated that the mass production of lawyers will not happen under her watch.
She stated: “Those of you lawyers and those of you lecturers who are busy advocating free scale, mass admissions into the professional law course, and mass production of lawyers, be careful what you wish for.”
“So long as I have anything to do with it, it won’t happen. Just like you can’t mass-produce doctors and surgeons, Ghanaians must not have mass-produced lawyers imposed on them,” the Chief Justice said when she addressed the Bench, Bar and Faculty Conference at the Labadi Beach Hotel on the theme: ‘The Changing Landscape in the Law – the Judge, the Lawyer and the Academic’.

She added: “Those of us who have been too long on the General Legal Council, those of us who spent too long on the Disciplinary Committee, we have cause to worry because the kinds of misconduct are such that there is no way anybody envisaged these categories of misconduct when the Legal Profession Act was being enacted in the 1960s.”
