In an instant! Gideon Pena shares JD migration memo
Atty. Gideon Pena is one of the many abogados sharing the new memo from the Legal Education Board. Recently, all Bachelor of Law degrees and Juris Doctor degrees will be one and the same.
“The Bachelor of Laws degree awarded or conferred to graduates of the basic law course by HEI with recognized law schools […] are considered and declared as equivalent to the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree.” pic.twitter.com/WdVCo94ZK5

The LEB explained that this was done to avoid confusion in the public. The regulatory body wants no inferiority in getting any of the degrees especially after a JD is described as an enhanced version of the Bachelor of Law degree.
The use of the term “Bachelor of Law” will be discontinued in the country. All abogados who will graduate from any law school nationwide will be conferred with a Juris Doctor degree.
Wala ng gap, sorry!
