The Director of the Ghana Law School, Yaw Oppong, has said the social media accounts of all students are going to be monitored.
The social media profiles of all students would be watched, according to Yaw Oppong, director of the Ghana Law School.
They must all submit their social media accounts for surveillance, he argued, in order to do this. He explained that this was done to make sure they would behave well if called to the bar.
During the SRC (School of Law Students’ Representative Council) executives’ swearing-in event, Mr. Oppong made these remarks.
“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,” he said.
He added “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,” he noted.
