IT IS about time lecturers at the Zambia Institute for Legal Education (ZIALE) defended themselves regarding allegations of a cartel by some selfish legal counsels there who allegedly fail students.
There are insinuations that if the same examination which saw only four out of almost 400 students passing was to be given to independent examiners to mark, a lot more students would pass.
What is it at ZIALE which makes it difficult for students to pass exams?
The performance of students at ZIALE has raised eyebrows across the country because if people taking tough courses such as engineering and medicine (dealing in heart and brain surgery) can easily make it, why not law?
ZIALE should provide guidance.
