Scrap law school entrance exam


Summary short_text

MountCrest University College has held its 10th matriculation ceremony with a call for an overhaul of Ghana's legal education system, and the immediate scrapping of the entrance examination for the Ghana School of Law.
Addressing the fresh students at the ceremony which was held online, Mrs. Irene Ansa-Asare Horsham, the Rector of MountCrest, the first private university in Ghana to run a law faculty, said, "Our system of legal education has, rather than being progressive, become restrictive based on what I consider to be an erroneous notion that we have too many lawyers in Ghana".
The first step, she said, is to scrap the entrance examination to the Ghana School of Law immediately because that examination creates a danger of taking away the focus of law faculties from training ethically responsible graduates with a strong sense of good governance and social justice to rather focusing solely on strategies aimed at passing the law school entrance examination at the end of the LLB and in effect produces what she called, "Walking encyclopaedias".
