The four Sundays of October (6, 13, 20 and 27) mark the Philippine Bar Exam, wherein thousands and thousands of law graduates take the final examination which will make or break their formal entry into the legal world. The 2013 exams will be held in the University of Santo Tomas.
Having many friends from college who took up law (I took up a social science course), I regularly see their updates on social media regarding their studies and study routines. There are also a few who hole up in rented spaces for a few months until the bar. There are also several who also study with their “brods” and “sisses”. Much like anything that is major in life, preparation for the bar exam is very challenging, and involves one’s mental, emotional and physical being.
Taking the bar exam is a life-changing experience in itself, so I pray that all of the barristers, especially my friends, would have a sound mind, have healthy bodies and strong hearts to undergo it. Good luck and GOD bless barristers! And I pray to see all of your names in February 2014!
