Ghana school of law has recorded a total of 206 law students failing the schools final Bar exams.

Local news agency in Ghana Myjoyonline reports that another group of 177 students have been referred to take one or two papers again.

The failed students would have to give the entire course another shot.

Out of 474 students who sat for the 2017-2018 final exams, only 91 students were deemed to have passed and will be called to the Bar.

The mass failure by the students comes at a time Parliament is seeking to legalize the entrance exams and interview processes instituted as part of the admission procedures into the Ghana School of Law.

There have been divided opinions by various stakeholders in Ghana as to whether or not the entrance exams should be maintained.

The General Legal Council, the body that oversees legal education and profession in Ghana argues the exams and interviews are to ensure higher standards in legal education.

However, chief crusader against the entrance exams Prof Kwaku Asare insists the entrance exams and interviews at the Ghana School of Law are illegal.

Currently, there is an LI in Parliament currently going through a mandatory 21-day period before it will mature into law.

If members of the House are unable to raise two-thirds majority to kick against the LI it will automatically mature into law.
