The 2017 bar exam covered eight (8) pillars: Political Law and Public International Law (15%), Labor and Social Legislation (10%), Civil Law (15%), Taxation (10%), Mercantile Law (15%), Criminal Law (10%), Remedial Law (20%) and Legal and Judicial Ethics (5%).

In previous examinations, the all-time high 59.06% passing rate made a buzz. In addition, all topnotchers were from provincial schools. University of San Carlos' Karen Mae Calam topped the bar with a rating of 89.05%.

The Philippine bar examinations, dubbed as the most prestigious professional licensure exam in the country for aspiring lawyers, is the only professional exam not handled by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). It is exclusively supervised by the Supreme Court.

The SC conducts the Bar examinations pursuant to Article VIII, Section 5 of the Constitution which provides that it shall have the power to promulgate rules governing the admission to the practice of law.

The tough examination has the usual passing rate of 20% to 30%.

Congratulations to our new lawyers!
