Dissolve GLC now! – Prof Asare reacts as Ghanaian universities fail to appear in African rankings

Stephen Asare, a Ghanaian professor of law and accounting, has shared his opinion on the release of the 2020 Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

According to him, a number of factors could be identified as the reasons behind the inability of Ghanaian university to appear in the rankings.

In his opinion, the General Legal Council (GLC) and the Ghana School of Law (GSL) have not lived up to their mandate.

For that reason, he explained, the framework to turnaround the fate of legal education in Ghana remains the same, leaving no room for transformation.

Professor Asare, also known as Kweku Azar, explained that South Africa, which claimed all the slots for Africa in the ranking, has unique features which make legal education at the tertiary level appealing and practical.

The University of Pretoria topped the African ranking with a score of 41.8 out of 100 and claimed the 90th position in the world.

Ghana, he went on, is yet to such tactics, and for that reason, lags behind with respect to the benefits of legal education.

He revealed that unlike South Africa, Ghana is yet to demonstrate the quality and use of the five key metrics adopted in the ranking.

The metrics adopted were Teaching, Research, Citations, International Flavour and Industry Income.


In other news, details of the government’s expenditure on consultancy services in the year 2018 have caused a stir online.

Professor Stephen Kwaku Asare indicated that Ghana paid $204,325,225 for technical and management services in the year 2018.

This represents an over 400% increase as the country spent $39,946,317 on the same services the year before.
