A private Legal Practitioner, John Ndebugri, has attributed the mass failure recorded over the years at the law school entrance exam to alot of factors
According to him, the people who sit for the examination, who he prefers to call the computer generation lack attention and use a lot of 'computer language.'
Speaking on the Eyewitness News, Ndebugri however urged the students to brace the fact that they have failed the examinations because of their lack of attention and the useage of too many computerised english.
“The mass failure we are facing today can be attributed to a lack of attention to language. People are now using computer English. You can’t speak computer English in law school and [expect to] pass, you can’t write computer English–I dey do this, I dey do that, using abbreviations which have no meanings,” he said.
He also stated that the advocates for a reformed legal education system were only promoting a model that woild support the mass production of lawyers; a situation that must be avoided.
Over 90 percent of students who sat for this year’s Ghana School of Law entrance examination failed to make the cut for admission.
Results showed that of the 1,820 candidates who sat for the entrance exams, only 128, representing 7 percent passed.
