MANILA, Philippines — Inanunsyo ng Supreme Court (SC) on Sunday na ikakasa ang 2023 Bar examinations sa Setyembre 17, 20 at 24.

Ipinaliwanag ni Associate Justice Ramon Paul Hernando, 2023 Bar chairperson, na ang pagsasagawa ng Bar examination sa mas kaunting bilang ng mga araw will allow the refocusing of the study of law on the “fourth-year review classes instead of on post- graduate Bar review.”

“Just as important, it will also mean lesser review costs…More importantly, the new members of the Bar will have an opportunity for early employment and contribution to society,” ani Hernando sa ikatlong araw ng Northern Luzon Regional Convention ng Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP).

Bukod sa naunang schedule at pinaunting bilang ng mg araw, binawasan din ang core subjects sa pagsusulit mula sa walo, na ginawang anim.

“Commercial Law and Taxation Law have been conjoined to the close affinity between these two fields in legal practice,” pahayag ni Hernando.

“Where Remedial Law and Legal and Judicial Ethics with Practical Exercises were fused together as these subjects complement each other in actual practice,” dagdag niya.

Nangangahulugan ito na ang six-core subjects ay ibibigay sa tatlong araw:  “Following the configuration of Sunday, Wednesday and Sunday, namely, Political and Public International Law, Commercial and Taxation Laws (on the 1st day), Civil Law, Labor Law and Social Legislation (2nd day), Criminal Law and Remedial Law, Legal and Judicial Ethics with Practical Exercises (3rd day).”

Sinabi pa ni Hernando na maglalaan ng apat na oras kada subject: Mula alas-8 ng umaga hanggang alas-12 ng tanghali at mula alas-2 ng hapon hanggang alas-6:00 ng hapon.

Samantala, ayon kay Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo, matapos makumpleto ng 9,000 candidates ang localized at digitized 2022 Bar examinations kamakailan sa 14 local testing centers sa buong bansa, napagdesisyunan ng Korte Suprema na ikasa ang digital Bar Examinations.

Ito, aniya ay “in line with the Strategic Plan for Judicial Innovations’ 2022-2027 (SPJI) drive towards running all of the judiciary’s adjudicative and administrative systems digitally.”

“The high cost of litigation and lack of publicly-accessible information on the courts, judicial processes, and legal aid have hindered access to the courts by many,” ani Gesmundo.

“Thus, under our SPJI, we will enhance public access to information through the development and deployment of intelligent platforms for self-help services, public assistance, and public access to court-related information and services,” patuloy niya. RNT/SA
