Accra, Oct.7, GNA - The students of the Ghana Law School on Monday demonstrated to draw attention of the Chief Justice on the need to reform legal education.

The students marched from the Makola Campus through the Atta-Mills High Street and made a stop at the Court Complex, where they sat on the road in silence after reciting the National Anthem.

The aggrieved students, who were in red T-shirts carried placards with various inscriptions that suggested the need to open up the legal system in Ghana.

Some of the inscriptions included "Reform Legal Education Now", "Publish Marking Scheme and Allow Remarking Now", "Enough is Enough", "Abolish the Makola Exam, Decentralise Legal Education".

The students also made a stop at the Attorney General's Office to register their displeasure against the system of legal education in the country.

Amidst the protests, the students presented a copy of the petition to the Attorney General.
