The Management of the Ghana School of Law in response has stated that the institution is considering introducing a triple track system to increase enrolment in terms of improved passes.
According to the Director of the Ghana School of Law, Maxwell Opoku Agyeman, due to the large numbers admitted, the triple track system will enable them maximize the use of their limited facility.
The new system, he said, will also ensure that the weekly academic timetable of lectures become more time-efficient.
