The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday announced that the next Bar examinations for aspiring lawyers will be held in November next year.

“By approval of the Court en banc, the next bar examinations will be held on November 2021. The examination periods and the venues of the next bar examinations will be announced in a separate bar bulletin,” Associate Justice and 2020/2021 Bar examinations chairperson Marvic Leonen said in a message sent to newsmen.

Last April, the SC decided to postpone the 2020 Bar examinations to next year in view of the increasing number of coronavirus disease 2019 cases in the country, the social and economic disruption caused by the pandemic, and the movement restrictions due to community quarantine protocols.

Leonen said this is to give the SC ample time to determine the necessary adjustments and make adequate preparations for the safe and orderly conduct of the examinations.

Leonen earlier said the next Bar exams shall be held in Manila and Cebu City.

The exams are usually conducted in Manila on all Sundays of November every year.

A total of 2,103 examinees or 27.36 percent of the 7,685 takers passed the 2019 Bar examinations. (PNA)
