Ghana School of Law quota system branded unfair

Two Professors have called for an end to a quota system at the Ghana School of Law (GSL), which limits the number of entrants into the school to 250.

Legal scholars Prof. Stephen Kwaku Asare and Prof. H. Kwasi Prempeh took to Facebook Thursday to argue that with over 1000 law students graduating from various universities across the country annually, it was unfair to limit the number of LLB holders who can pursue their professional course at the GSL to 250.

The problem, according to them, is compounded by what they say is a lack of transparent criteria for admitting the 250.
