Chel Diokno on law curriculum: It’s just a business to make them pass the Bar!
Atty. Chel Diokno has a lot to say about the reforms in the legal education curriculum. The abogado noted that it is too oriented about making students just pass the Bar without much regard for anything else.
The entire curriculum of law schools is oriented toward the bar exams and it disregards ethical value, skills that they need everyday in their practice. Legal education has become a business of making students pass the bar exams and that’s it. #25ChelDiokno https://t.co/v8krwSuRWn

Diokno called it a business for most universities who have it in their course program. The abogado wishes that it paid more attention to legal ethics and the skills they need to practice it daily.
The abogado’s stance is one with the call of several lawyer candidates who wanted to push for ethics. He wrote, “There should be a judicial track for law students to lessen corruption.”
Law schools, what’s good?
