You shouldn’t bother studying law in Ghana. Find the money and do it outside.

Nana Ofori Amanfo II said those who were denied admission had no kind of connections.

You don’t get login but you buy law school forms, Massa don’t you know you are donating indirectly to the national cathedral project?

Joey akanboriyine claims due to limited space, many people are denied admission.

Glove Mawuena Zewu says the system is unreasonable.

Shattering the dreams of young people who just want to make a living … unreasonable scrutiny and mechanism. How do you adjust your knowledge of law and your ability to follow the professional course in ONE SINGLE session?

Also on law school issues, an interlocutory request that had been filed to suspend entrance exams to the Ghana School of Law (GSL) was rejected by the Supreme Court.

The decision gave the green light for the entrance exams to the Ghana Law School, which were to take place as scheduled on Friday, July 27, 2018.

US-based Ghanaian lawyer Professor Stephen Kweku Asare has filed for an injunction on the exams.
