The report said the General Legal Council had called a meeting on what decision to take.
This is not the first time this is happening, in July 2022, the Independent Examinations Body was compelled to cancel the “Civil Procedure” paper because it was suspected to have leaked hours before the time it was scheduled to be taken.
Commenting on the incident, an expert on education with think tank Centre for Social Justice (CSJ), Nii Armah Addy, said it was unfortunate that the IEC questions keep leaking.
"It is a shame where we are with regards to legal education...the LI 1296, which is the legislative instrument that spells out the qualification for legal education in Ghana has been crucified by the GLC," Mr Addy told YEN.com.gh.
He said the law has been overturned by the General Legal Council to viscously prevent people aspiring to study law to do so.
"Why? Because at a point in time, there were more people qualifying for professional legal education than the available space to admit them," he said.
He has admonished the GLC to be in tune with modern principles of legal education that does not deliberately truncate people's aspirations to practice law.
Private Schools In Ghana Want WAEC Scrapped Because It Has Outlived Its Purpose
YEN.com.gh has reported in a previous story that all private basic and secondary schools in Ghana want the West African Examination Council (WAEC) scrapped.
Their mother body, the Ghana National Council for Private Schools (GNACOPS), believes that the council has outlived its usefulness.
National Executive Director for GNACOPS, Kwesi Enoch Nana Gyetuah has said the rigid examination regime of the WAEC is not consistent with modern tenets of education.
“Somebody goes to school for nine years, 12 years, sits in WAEC exams – let’s say WASSCE or BECE – and then they [WAEC] will come and tell you that you have failed in Mathematics, you have failed English and because of that your line is truncated you can’t develop anymore,” 3News quoted GNACOPS in a report.
