Students of the Ghana School of Law have been asked to submit their social media handles to the school authority.
This is to ensure that the students maintain a character befitting the legal profession.
This was made known by the Director of the School, Yaw Oppong, during the swearing-in ceremony of the School of Law Students’ Representative Council (SRC) executives.
According to Yaw Oppong, the move will help many students willing to be called to the bar to maintain a good character.
He called on the students to submit themselves for character checks before the General Legal Council’s approval.
“Everybody will have to provide their social media handles. We are going to look at it and you will be monitored in terms of conduct. We are required by law to make recommendations. We don’t want to stampede you.
“You are going to reapply beyond the pass and submit yourselves for all legitimate checks. Once we are doing our best to ensure that as many of you as possible who want to help yourselves go beyond the stage you are, and we are succeeding, it will not compromise your good character.”
“It’s of no use if you are qualified to go to second year, and you are told that you cannot go because of bad character,” Yaw Oppong said.
