    Accdg to MCLE, lawyers admitted in 2013 are exempt for this cycle until 2016. Paconfirm na lang sa MCLE. But of course you will not be prohibited from attending MCLE programs.

    I hope you’re not a lawyer nor did pass the recent bar cause your words define your character and with your purpose of being a lawyer, you’re making poor filipinos poorer. Very kind of you.

  5. For those of you who have iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you should checkout the Panyero – Philippine Law Quiz app. It’s a must-have for bar examinees.

  6. How to compute if the estate left by the deceased is 8M and survivors are
    2 LC
    3 Adopted children
    and during the lifetime of the decedent made a donation on 1 LC of 7M
    and bequeathed an estate worth 1M to a friend
    How will the computation be including the free portion?

    Thank you so much…
