Legal Education Board OKs limited in-person classes for law schools
MANILA, Philippines—The Legal Education Board (LEB) on Thursday announced that limited in-person classes are now allowed in all law schools in the country except in areas under Alert Levels 4 and 5.
In a statement, the LEB said legal education institutions (LEIs) are not required to shift to face-to-face classes.
However, legal education institutions that wish to do so only need to formally notify the LEB. The LEB added that legal education institutions can also choose flexible learning.
The LEB has assured that all mandatory public health standards shall be followed in the gradual reopening of campuses.
“Continuous monitoring will also be conducted to ensure health and safety are the priority,” the LEB added.
The LEB is an independent government agency tasked with the regulation of the legal education in the country.
To date, there are about 129 law schools in the Philippines.
