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.

History will judge judges on how they adhered to CIPI++.
