law_bookLaw graduates of the University of Ghana, Legon, and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who were not admitted into the Ghana Law School are threatening legal action against the school.

The students could not be admitted because of a new quota system of admission implemented by the school.

Under the system the General Legal Council said it had allocated 100 places for University of Ghana law students, 80 for KNUST law students and 40 for foreign and external degree holders.

Early on in the year law students of the KNUST kicked against the quota system and subsequently petitioned the council to reconsider its decision.

Meanwhile a former student of the University of Ghana Law School, who prefers to remain anonymous, blames the situation on poor planning.

The deadline for registration of new entrants to the Ghana School of Law is September 14.

There has been no reaction from authorities of the school.
