A group of Ghanaian law students who trained in Rwanda have petitioned President Akufo-Addo to intervene in securing their admission to the Ghana School of Law for their post call study.
 
The students say appeals to the Chief Justice and authorities of the Ghana School of Law have yielded no results.
 
According to the petition, the students were compelled to study in Rwanda because of the difficulties associated with gaining admission into the Ghana School of Law.
 
Speaking to an Accra based Private Radio station one of the petitioners, Nana Fredua Agyeman, said they are waiting for the General Legal Council to take a decision on their case.
 
He said they are the first batch of Ghanaian students to have studied in Rwanda.
 
The group of students have already submitted a petition to Parliament against the new LI, accusing the General Legal Council of a deliberate attempt to frustrate them.
 
The leader of the group, Ken Donkor, said the proposed LI is an attempt to kill the dreams of law students.
 
The current training regime limits intake into the Ghana Law School to five hundred out of the more than two thousand LLB graduates annually.
