The president of the Student Representative Council of Ghana School of Law, Wonder Victor Kutor has pleaded with the government and the bodies responsible for regulating the legal education in Ghana to try and fix a place for the students who he reckons obtained past marks but were denied entry into the law school.
President Nana Addo waded into the controversial Ghana School of Law entry subject in a recent radio interview indicating that there is no space for the 499 law students who were denied admission despite attaining the 50 percent threshold, an explanation he got from the Ghana Legal Council (GLC).
However, the SRC President for Ghana Law School, Wonder Kutoh says last year about 1,045 students were admitted into the law school with the same facilities.
He also stated that the school of law has rented facilities such as the Green Hill facility in Gimpa, and the Kumasi campus is also a rented facility in KNUST.
According to him, the SCR had thought of renting a space at the UPSA for the 499 students.
Speaking on Maakye with Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye on Kessben FM/TV he noted the 790 students that have been admitted however will attend lectures at the University of Ghana for the first semester from now to December.
” The problem is, if the 790 students have been fixed somewhere, we, therefore, plead to the government to rent a place for the 499 students since they have passed the entrance exams” he said.
The SRC president suggested that the authorities should rent a place at the University of Professional Studies for the 499 students to be enrolled.
