  1. I had my first court appearance in a criminal case. I tell you fellow fresh lawyers, masarap po ang pakiramdam na makatulong bilang isang lawyer. Lalo na kung walang pera ang client mo para magbayad ng serbisyo ng isang abogado. Dun ko nafeel ang essence ng lawyer’s oath ko. I must say, it was a frightening but a challenging experience to argue with a seasoned lawyer in court. It was really something worth remembering.

    Now, I am having the taste of being a lawyer (after lawschool).

  2. Hello panyeros and panyeras, any idea kung ano ang process sa pagkuha ng exam booklets for those who pass the bar exam? I would love to get it back sana.

    1. Hi po, Atty! Hindi na po binibigay ng SC ang exam booklets since 2010 (if i am not mistaken). Went to the OBC last week and saw piles of bar exam booklets (not sure from what bar exam year). A co-examinee asked one of the employees from OBC kung ano gagawin sa booklets, he said “tutunawin”… maybe what he meant was irerecycle.

  3. Hi mga lawyers. Ok lang po ba maka hingi sa 2016 Baste Mock Bar Q&A? Self review lang po kasi ako. salamat in advance sa donors.

  4. Hello all,

    Kasali ba tayo(new lawyers) sa mcle for this year?

    I am living in cebu, until now, still did not receive my documents for notary from OBC. Nagfile na ako noong May pa.. ๐Ÿ™

    1. Hi, nope hindi tayo included. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Follow up mo docs mo sa OBC. Nag request ako last July nakuha ko naman agad after two weeks.
