Playback: PM Express unpacks AG’s new legal profession bill

Mobile Category

Three Members of Parliament are seeking for an introduction of a private member’s bill- legal education reform bill.

They are; MP for Bolgatanga East, Dominic Ayine, MP for Asawase, Muntaka Mohammed Muburak and MP for Okaikwei Central, Patrick Yaw Boamah.

According to the MPs, the bill when passed, would fill the yawning legislative and regulatory gaps existing in the current legal and regulatory framework by providing for critical aspects of legal education that remain either partially regulated or wholly regulated.

This decision comes after 499 prospective law students were denied admission into the Ghana School of Law over failure to meet the pass mark. The candidates therefore filed a suit against the GLC.

However, the General Legal Council has agreed to admit the students but the date to report to school is yet to be announced.

Tonight on PM Express, JoyNews’ Evans Mensah will host D and D Fellow in Public Law and Justice CDD-Ghana, Prof Stephen Kwaku Asare, Chairman of Subsidiary Legislation Committee of Parliament and Sponsor, Private Members Bill on Legal Education, Dr Dominic Ayine, President of National Association of Law Students, Hassan Asare and Former Director of Ghana Law School, Kwaku Ansa-Asare to discuss the AG’s new legal profession bill.
