The leadership of the Ghana School of Law’s 2023 cohort has expressed pleasure with this year’s call to the bar pass rate.
The Independent Examination Committee of the General Legal Council is said to have approved over 900 people, including 499 students who were denied entrance to the Ghana School of Law two years ago but were ultimately allowed following a series of protests and appeals.
Odupong Agyapong Atta-Agyapong, the immediate past SRC president of the Ghana School of Law, said Citi News after the results were released that this year’s event will have the largest number of people called to the bar.
“It’s exciting how students are reacting on their WhatsApp pages and statuses,” he said. “For the first time, we are going to have over 900 students called to the Ghana bar. It’s quite historic given the turn of events in the past.”
Atta-Agyapong urged students who did not make it on the list to remain steadfast and work towards being called in the mini-call in March next year.
“It’s not the end of the road,” he said. “We have a mini-call, and it’s expected that next year these students will be offered the opportunity to sit for the supplementary exams, and when they are successful, they will be called.”
