The Supreme Court (SC) has met with the trustees and officers of the Philippine Association of Law Schools (PALS) and discussed the coming 2022 online bar examinations.

Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin S. Caguioa, chairperson of the 2022 bar examinations committee, represented the SC.

Details of the meeting, particularly on the dates of the examinations, were not disclosed by the SC’s public information office (PIO).

The meeting held last Friday, May 20, was attended by PALS’ Dean Virgilio R. De Los Reyes, trustee; Dean Gemy Lito L. Festin, president; Dean Domnina T. Rances, treasurer; and Dean Teodoro A. Pastrana, Assistant Treasurer.

The PIO said the other members of the PALS board of trustees and officers attended online via Microsoft Teams.

After the first online bar examinations held early this year for the years 2020 and 2021, the SC decided to continue the holding of all bar examinations starting 2022 online or in computerized format.

Chief Justice Alexander G. Gesmundo announced the continuation of all bar examinations online during the hybrid launching of the Legal Education Advancement Program (LEAP) of the Legal Education Board (LEB) held last February 24.

“To sustain the momentum of this digital shift, the Court will pursue the conduct of all succeeding Bar Examinations in a computerized format, a long overdue innovation, to align with our Strategic Plan’s drive towards running all of the judiciary’s adjudicative and administrative systems digitally,” Gesmundo said.
