MSU Law dean on Bar questions: Best approach is syllogism
Mindanao State University Law Dean Alizedney Ditucalan shared a question a brilliant student asked him regarding the Bar.
The abogado said that the best approach is syllogism or drawing conclusions from given propositions.
A very brilliant student asked me to clarify the seeming conflicting approaches (structure) on answering Bar questions.
I told him the approach to legal reasoning has always been syllogism. PERIOD!
But how many of us teaching the law know this?

Ditucalan noted that this is the best recourse for legal reasoning. The abogado noted that it seems like this is not a common knowledge in the legal profession.
The abogado said that review coaches must give emphasis on process rather than structure.
Do you agree?
