2023 Bar passers’ oath-taking, roll-signing set for December 22
MANILA, Philippines — The oath-taking and roll-signing ceremonies for successful examinees of the 2023 Bar will take place on December 22 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, the Supreme Court’s (SC) Public Information Office announced Wednesday.
The schedule was released, although the SC has yet to disclose the results of the 2023 Bar tests.
“There will be no increase in the Bar Admission Fees this year. Examinees and guests are encouraged to make the necessary logistical preparations,” the notice states, but did not indicate the release date for the Bar exam result.
This year’s Bar examination returned to September after a gap of 13 years. But it was shortened to three days instead of the usual four – September 17, 20, and 24.
Bar exam committee chair Associate Justice Ramon Paul Hernando earlier promised an early release of the result so that successful examinees could start their practice immediately after the holidays.
At least 10,300 examinees completed the 2023 Bar examination.
