NDC manifesto promise on legal education gives hope – NALS

Some law students demonstrated last year against the admission process at the Ghana School of Law

The National Association of Law Students (NALS) says it is convinced by the policies outlined by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to reform legal education in Ghana.

The Association in a statement copied UPSANEWSROOM.com Wednesday said the message put out by the opposition political party “gives hope.”

“NALS notes that NDC‟s succinctly put message simultaneously gives hope and certainty, and portrays the NDC as more caring about the legal education crisis, as at least having understood and committed to resolving the problem, as well as showing NDC as more interested in the horrific experience of the #RedMonday demonstration held on October 7, 2019, by law students across Ghana,” the statement read.

The Association said the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) lacks a better appreciation of issues facing law students.

“NALS is disappointed that the ruling NPP government is not eager to pursue the required short-term solution of legislation, which if passed, eradicates the same issues within the short time,” the group said.
