UL Faculty Terms as Faulty Decision to Cancel Law Schoole  Entrance Results

By: Contributing Writer

The University of Liberia Faculty Association has termed as unacceptable and an inconsistent administrative and managerial flaw on the part of the University to have shockingly cancelled its Law School Entrance Examination Results.

From January 8 to 10, 2024, the state-run University administered its Law School Entrance Examination to scores of citizens seeking enrollment at the nation’s highest learning institution.

However, on May 2, 2024, the UL Public Relations public announced the cancellation of the Law School Entrance Examination Results, citing applicants sitting the entrance exams without submitting all required documents as one of the key reasons for the cancellation.

But sharply reacting to this decision, the UL Faculty Association through a press release Tuesday, May 7, 2024, described the situation as frustrating and uncivilized; adding that such a move has the propensity to undermine the credibility of the institution.

ULFA expressed grave concern and emphasized that the University of Liberia, as a flagship University of the Republic of Liberia, is expected to set professional standards in all of its dealings as it serves as a role model to higher education in the country.

The association further holds that honest efforts must be made by all levels of decision makers and stakeholders to maintain quality standards at the state-run institution, urging the University to reconsider its decision and accept the administrative blunder.

“ULFA is taken aback that the University of Liberia could allow applicants of the Law School to sit the entrance exams without submitting all required documents, as stated in the University of Liberia May 2, 2024 Public Announcement,” the release said.

The association recounted that applicants paid for the entrance examination without receiving exam numbers and this was not resolved, yet, ULFA indicated that the exam was administered under questionable circumstances.

“More so, the deadline for the registration of the entrance is unclear and some of the reasons for the cancellation of the January 8-10, 2024 entrance as stated by the office of the Vice President of the University of Liberia Relations is unrealistic,” the statement noted.

Meanwhile, the UL Faculty Association called on the Board of Trustees of the institution to look into this issue with the utmost urgency required to ensure that the nobility of the University is maintained.

“As we await a reverse course of this action, ULFA shall begin to seek other means necessary to protect the image of the UL”, the release adde
