The Attorney General and Minister of Justice has said parliament has no power to direct the General Legal Council (GLC) to admit some 499 candidates who sat and passed the Ghana Law School entrance examination.
The 499 students were refused admission despite scoring 50 percent which is the required pass mark.
The National Association of Law Students (NALS) presented a petition to the legislature on the aggrieved 499 law students, who did not gain admission into the Ghana School of Law despite scoring more than the usual 50% pass-mark in the 2021 entrance exam.
The petition, among other things, pleaded with parliament to intervene and ask the General Legal Council and the management of the law school to immediately reverse their decision and admit the students.
