2007 Bar Chairman: Less abogados if we maintained high passing rate
Justice Adolfo Azcuna admitted that the Supreme Court’s lowering of the Bar passing rate lets more people become a lawyer. The abogado said that if he had his way, the mediocre would be separated from the best in the 2007 Bar Exam.
Azcuna believed that this will refine the standards of the Philippine judiciary if the Bar exam became more tedious. The abogado stated that the Philippines has too many lawyers anyway.
In his design, Remedial Law was given more weight at 20% followed by Mercantile Law, Political Law, and Civil Law at 15% each. Previously, the SC decided to lower the passing rate from 75% to 70% that led to a higher number of passers upon implementation.
More stress pa daw dapat!
