2012 Philippine Bar Exam Kicks Off

LAW graduates trooped to the University of Santo Tomas (UST) in Manila on Sunday for the start of the Bar examinations amid a tight security that was imposed by Manila policemen.

Supreme Court Associate Justice Martin Villarama Jr., chairman of this year’s Bar Examinations Committee, said a total 5,710 law graduates applied to take the Bar, but 19 of them withdrew their applications, while others were not allowed to take the tests.

The examinations will take four Sundays, with the examinees tackling a total of eight subjects, or two subjects for every examination day.

The subjects are political law and labor and social legislation, which the would-be lawyers took up on Sunday, and mercantile law, criminal law, remedial law and legal ethics and practical exercises.

Villarama said the examinations were in the forms of multiple-choice questions, which has a total weight average of 60 percent; and essay, with a total weight average of 40 percent.

John 3:16-18 ESV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
