The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has described the undertaking document prospective students of the Ghana Law School are required to signed as unconscionable and violates the rule of law.

NUGS, in a statement on the unfair arrangement for entrance exams for professional law course, indicated that, the Union will not stand for this and will ensure that students will sit the examination without having to submit to a forfeiture of their rights as guaranteed by the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.

An undertaking document, purported to be coming from the General Legal Council is requesting prospective students of the Ghana Law School to accept whatever results the General Legal Council will release after the entrance examination without questioning the decision.

Many Ghanaians have called the move unconstitutional, describing it as a way of denying the prospective students their right.

NUGS has therefore called on the students to remain steadfast in their preparation for the examination as the leadership works with other well-meaning stakeholders to remedy the situation.
