Law School Examination Leakage Is Due To Ghana’s Poor Education Policy Planning

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that a legal education expert has said a recent leak of exam questions of the Ghana School of Law was caused by the deliberate disregard for the law regulating legal education in the country.

Mr Nii Armah Addy, with think tank the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ), has said the General Legal Council (GLC), the regulators of legal education in Ghana, seems to have put the Legislative Instrument (LI) 1296 aside in deciding how legal education should be run.

"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.

The educationist made the remarks in reaction to the leak of the entrance exams questions of the school.

The exams was conducted by the Independent Examination Committee (IEC) of the General Legal Council.
