Parliament has asked the General Legal Council (GLC) to effect some changes that would have ripple effects on the examinations conducted at the Ghana Law School.
The House wants to re-open the period for re-marking of 2017/2018 exam scripts so that students who failed can take advantage of it and also asked the Ghana School of Law to reduce the re-marking fee from ¢3,000 to ¢500 so the students can apply for re-marking.
These were part of the five recommendations Parliament’s Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee made after it was petitioned by the Students Representative Council (SRC) of the Law School.
Chairman of the Committee, Ben Abdallah Banda said in a report to the House that their recommendations are to mitigate “the massive failures recorded by in the 20017/18 New Professional Law Examinations.”
As part of the recommendations, the Committee wants the adoption of an offsite marking retreat to ensure speedy re-marking of scripts.
Also, it wants all the marking schemes and examiner’s report made available to students and lecturers of the GLC.
