SC denies PAO's bid to remove "conflict of interest" clause in lawyers' new code supreme court covid regulations


MANILA, Philippines — The Supreme Court (SC) of the Philippines on Saturday denounced false information claiming that the 2023 Bar examinations will be “sorted, checked, and corrected by means of artificial intelligence.”

The SC clarified that the subjects of the examinations will be checked by four expert examiners.


“The 2023 Bar examinations shall be checked by four examiners per subject, all of whom are established experts in their respective fields, and who are by no means created or powered by artificial intelligence,” a statement undersigned by the Chair of the 2023 Bar Examinations Associate Justice Ramon Paul Hernando said.


A Facebook group page called “Bar Law for Dummies Training Program” and a certain account named “Tzidkenu Dizon” started the circulation of the false information.

The Office of the Bar Chair condemned the act and described it as “false, baseless, irresponsible, defamatory, contumacious, detestable, and formulated.”

It said that the disinformation has a clear intent of maligning the integrity of the digitalized Bar examinations.

The office also noted that after an initial probe, they already have the identities of the administrator of the accounts, and that the court is already undertaking proper measures against the individuals.

Under Bar Bulletin No. 1, Series of 2023, all stakeholders of the court were reminded to rely exclusively on its official communication channels.
