They will present a petition to the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Mike Ocquaye.

The students will be calling on the legislature to set up a committee to investigate the mass failure in the 2018 examinations.

The SRC President of the Ghana School of Law, Emmanuel Kwabena Owusu Amoah told Citi News that, they strongly believe that the problem of mass failures is not from the students.


“We are petitioning Parliament to form a commission inquiry into the whole matter. We as students believe strongly that the problem is not from us and we also believe that the problem also do not come from our lecturers because we are being taught by some of the best legal brains in Ghana but we want the serious inquiry into the situation to find out what exactly the problem is.”

Results released by the Independent Examinations Committee of the General Legal Council, show that only 64 students out of the about 800 students passed in all papers.
