Following the perennial failures associated with law school examinations, the Association of Law Students has appealed to Parliament, to first investigate the failures before reforming the law on legal education. 

This was contained in a statement issued to make public, submissions the association made before the legislature’s Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee Tuesday.

Calling for a Commission of Inquiry to look into the failures, the statement said “such a commission should also look into the feasibility of the numerous reports on the structure of legal education including but not limited to the Justice Sophia Adinyira Report, the April 2019 plenary report of Parliament’s Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee, the 2018 Report of the Ghana School of Law Registrar and Prof. Stephen Kwaku Asare’s proposals for legal education reform.”
