Supreme Court Postpones Philippine Bar Exam 2020
Aspiring lawyers have to wait until next year.
(SPOT.ph) With the continuing rise of positive COVID-19 cases in the Philippines, a lot of annual events had to be canceled or postponed this year. This includes the upcoming Philippine Bar Examination, which is held every November. According to an announcement by the Supreme Court of the Philippines on September 8, the "next Bar Examinations will be held on November 2021" by the "approval of the Court En Banc."
This means that two batches of aspiring lawyers will be taking their exams at the same time next year. Exact dates and venues are yet to be announced in a separate Bar Bulletin, according to the Supreme Court.
