Ghana’s General Legal Council (GLC) has set up a committee to investigate the circumstances that led to the mass failure of students at the Ghana School of Law (GSL). BBC News reports that more than 90% of the 727 students failed the recent Bar exams, according to results released by the GLC's exam committee. Some lecturers at the law school had threatened to resign over the mass failures and demanded that the results be reviewed. The GLC said it was committed to ensuring the integrity of the Bar examination process. The GSL is the only institution accredited in the country to train law students.
