Bar exam and legal education (3)

By

The Bar Exam assesses the students’ knowledge of basic laws. Beyond the basics is the responsibility of law schools. By conducting the bar exam, the Supreme Court does not and cannot guarantee the applicants’ fitness and readiness to take on specialized fields, like law-of-the-sea, patent, or securities cases.

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.

Fortified legislature

By

In most democracies, the legislature is the most powerful branch of government because it represents and expresses the sovereign will of the people. This is especially true in parliamentary systems. Here, the chief executives, called prime ministers, are elected by and owe absolute loyalty to parliament. Once parliament loses confidence in them for whatever reason, they are deposed. The tripartite separation of powers finds no application in parliamentary governments.

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++.
