The Supreme Court approved today to move the 2015 bar examinations from October to November following the Philippine Association of Law Schools' recommendation and the academic calendar shift for most law schools and its effect on the examinees' review period.
Bar Confidant Cristina B. Layusa, who had endorsed the recommendation, said the venue will be announced later. This year’s Bar Exams, the 114th to be conducted in the country, will be chaired by Associate Justice Teresita J. Leonardo-de Castro,
In 2011, the Bar exams were held in November when then Bar Chair SC Associate Justice Roberto Abad moved the date from September to avoid the rainy season. The following year, however, the exams were moved from November to October. In 2013, the Bar Exams were again held in October.
Likewise, the 2014 Bar Examinations, chaired by SC Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta, were held in the four Sundays of October. It consisted of 20% multiple choice questions and 80% essay-type questions taken by 5,994 examinees out of the 6,344 admitted applicants.
The Bar examinations will take place over the four Sundays of November, requiring examinees to answer in long hand. It is regarded as the most prestigious professional licensure exam in the country due to its difficulty. ###
