A Human Rights Court has dismissed an application for interlocutory injunction on the entrance examination of the Ghana School of Law tomorrow, July 14, 2017.

Eleven LLB graduates filed the application essentially praying the court to stop the examination on the basis that the Supreme Court on June 22, 2017 declared the examination and its accompanying interview “unconstitutional”.

Arguing in court Thursday, lawyer for the applicants Kwaku Ansa-Asare said the conduct of the examination by the General Legal Council would amount to carrying out an illegal act in breach of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.
