Law Professor Contest Constitutional Criteria For Admitting LLB holders

The Supreme Court has adjourned sine die the case in which a law Professor is contesting the constitutionality of criteria used in the admitting LLB holders into Ghana School of Law.


The court expressed its displeasure at parties in ability to agree on memorandum of issues and file same before the court.

The seven member panel was also not happy over how the matter had dragged on 2015.

This practice according to the court paints picture that it did not want to hear the matter because the General Legal Council (GLC) was made up of members of the Supreme Court (SC).

The SC therefore ordered parties namely, the GLC the Attorney General (AG)who are the defendants and Professor Kweku Asare, the plaintiff to reach a consensus.

The court further directed that if that fails then they should file their memorandum of issues.

The GLC is responsible for Legal education in the country.

Prof. Asare on October 15, 2015 according a Ghana News Agency report issued a writ against the GLC and the AG over the way the Ghana School of Law conducted its entrance examinations and interviews before students are gain admissions into the school.

The plaintiff contended that the rigid ceiling imposed by the General Legal Council for the admissions were unfair and that it turned to override state’s interest.
