MANILA, Philippines — Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, who chairs the 2020/21 Bar examination, on Friday cautioned applicants against posting their notices of admission on social media.

In a Twitter post, Leonen warned bar examinees that such action is a violation of the law and honor code.

“Stop posting the Notice of Admission of bar examinees in any form (Facebook, Twitter, et al). This is a violation of law and covered by your commitments under the honor code. This is your last and only warning,” he said on Twitter.

Part of the Honor Code for Bar Examinees states: “On my honor, I declare that I have not done and will not do any act that can be construed as cheating or dishonesty by the Bar Chairperson or by the Supreme Court. Likewise, I commit not to aid or tolerate anyone who attempts or commits any form of cheating or dishonesty before, during, and after the Bar Examinations.”

The Honor Code further states that: “Any failure on my part to comply with these commitments may constitute grounds for my permanent disqualification for this and any future bar examinations.”

Notice of admission is needed so that the Bar examinee will be allowed to enter the testing sites during the scheduled examination dates.

The Bar examination is set for February 4 and 6.

The Supreme Court’s Office of the Bar Confidant (SC-OBC) earlier advised the examinees who have yet to receive their notices of admission not to panic.
