Bar exam and legal education (2)

By

Let me continue last Sunday’s column on the bar examinations which will be held on Oct. 5, 12, 19 and 26. The exams measure the candidates’ theoretical knowledge of these basic subjects: “Political and International Law; Labor Law and Social Legislation; Civil Law; Taxation; Mercantile Law; Criminal Law; Remedial Law; and Legal and Judicial Ethics.” The Supreme Court has issued Bar Bulletin No. 1 describing in detail the scope or syllabus for each of these subjects.

Transformation of SC justices

By

Assuming his Supreme Court seat on Aug. 20, Justice Francis H. Jardeleza aptly declared, “I will dispense my duties with competence, integrity, probity and independence, always bearing in mind the interest of the Filipino people.” To these four traits required by the Constitution (which I code-named “CIPI”), may I add industry to speed up the cases in the Court. I agree with him that justices should promote the interest of our people by, in my humble view, safeguarding liberty and nurturing prosperity. History will judge judges on how they adhered to CIPI++.
