LLB Grads to fight for injunction against upcoming entrance exams

A group of law graduates calling themselves the Concerned LLB Graduates, say they are going ahead to seek an injunction to halt the upcoming entrance exams for potential students of the Ghana School of Law.

A leader of the group, Godfred Tessu said it will not allow the General Legal Council to perpetrate an illegality vis-à-vis the ongoing arrangements to conduct the July 14 entrance exams.

“We had a meeting and we agreed that, this coming week, we will go to court and defend our right. We are going to ask the court to place an injunction on the exam and we hope that the court will grant it.” he said.

The group last week called on the GLC to facilitate automatic admission into the Law School by scrapping this years exams set for July 14, 2017.

The position of the LLB Graduates, follows the Supreme Court ruling declaring the entrance examination and subsequent interview by the Ghana School of law as unconstitutional.

They were of the view that the impending exams will amount to an illegality after the Supreme court’s judgment on the matter.

But the GLC in its response sighted by Kasapafmonline.com  shot down the petition by the group, saying the entrance exams will take place in line with the terms of the judgment by the Supreme court.
