Like in previous years, bar candidates capped off Sunday this year’s bar exam through the traditional “salubong”  traditionally staged by law schools, fraternities, sororities and organizations, as well as families and friends, for the examinees on the last day of the exams.

According to the Manila Police District (MPD) director Brig. Gen. Bernabe Balba, the conduct of bar exams over the past four weeks was “peaceful.”

“In terms of security, I can say the conduct is peaceful for the last three Sundays and we are hoping to continue the peacefulness of the examination of our future lawyers,” Balba said.

It can be recalled that a riot erupted between two rival fraternities along Dapitan Street in Manila last November 3. Five persons were reportedly involved identified as Ronrei Don Amboy, Gean Milovan Borja, John Manuel Velasco, Bing Lorenzo dela Paz and Scander Guiling Dator.

However, the Manila top cop said around 500 policemen, along with other officials, were deployed on the last day of the examination to ensure the security of bar exams.

K-9 units and police bomb squad were also deployed around UST.

Balba also said they were able to strictly enforce and implement eight city ordinances during the last day of bar exams, including the Revised Ordinances 7498, drunk and disorderly conduct; 838, the selling of liquors to minor; 844, breach of peace; 846, anti-noise; 864-C, concealing deadly weapons; 1054, urinating in public places; 864, prohibiting firecrackers, and 5555, drinking in public places.

Huge crowds greeted the bar hopefuls who were able to finish the month-long exam at the University of Santo Tomas.

This year’s bar exams were held at the UST these past four consecutive Sundays. The Bar exams cover eight subjects namely Political Law, Civil Law, Taxation, Labor Law, Criminal Law, Remedial Law, Mercantile Law and Legal and Judicial Ethics.

According to Supreme Court, the number of examinees went down to 7,691 on the second exam day from the initial 8, 245 expected bar candidates.
