I am reposting an announcement from the Supreme Court website for this year's Bar Exams.
Side comment -- Bar Ops "Banned". Such a stiff word. Too bad, it has been a tradition for years to hold bar ops within the bar site. To ban this would really forget about the past bar exams.
'Bar Ops' Within Vicinity of UST Banned
Posted: October 24, 2011; By Gleo Sp. Guerra
Bar operations, such as setting up of streamers, sendoffs, and cheering squads, are banned within the vicinity of the University of Santo Tomas, the venue of the 2011 Bar examinations during November 6, 13, 20, and 27.
This was announced by Supreme Court Bar Confidant and Deputy Clerk of Court Atty. Ma. Cristina B. Layusa in a Bar briefing for superintendents and supervisors of the Bar examinations at the SC Old Session Hall this afternoon.
Atty. Layusa also revealed that 2011 Bar Chairperson Justice Roberto A. Abad has directed that the streets surrounding the UST campus (Dapitan St., P. Noval St., España Boulevard, and Lacson Avenue) remain open to traffic for all four Sundays of the Bar examinations.
To maintain peace and order during the Bar examinations, she said that the Court will be assisted by uniformed police and plainclothes agents of the National Bureau of Investigation.
Six thousand two hundred (6,200) law graduates have been cleared by the Court to take this year’s Bar Examinations, which for the first time will be held in November as well as feature multiple-choice questions. The list of admitted Bar applicants can be viewed at sc.judiciary.gov.ph.
