Lawyers called to the Bar.

The Supreme Court has fixed April 11 to commence hearing of the suit filed against the General Legal Council (GLC).  

The suit is challenging the methods and criteria used in the selection and admission of Bachelor of Law Degree (LLB) holders who desire to acquire licence to practise law in the country.  

The seven-member panel presided over by Justice Victor Jones Dotse however asked parties in the matter to file joint memorandum of issues.  

On October 15, 2015, Professor Stephen Kwaku Asare, a US based Ghanaian law professor filed a suit against the General Legal Council and the Attorney General over the way and manner the Ghana School of Law conducts its entrance examinations and interviews for students who desire admissions.

He argued that the rigid ceiling imposed by the GLC on Bachelor of Law Degree (LLB) holders who would be allowed an opportunity to train and become lawyers is grossly unfair and overrides national interest.

  1. I am impressed with the challenge thrown to the legal council. I want to see how it will go, I pray no infractions will be framed to distract the process.
