The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday announced that the results of the 2020/21 bar exams would be released next Tuesday, April 12.

In a press release, the SC said it would hold a special en banc session on April 12 to discuss Associate Justice Marvic Leonen’s report on the first-ever digitalized and regionalized bar examinations and the release of results.

The SC said the oath-taking of successful examinees would be on May 2, 2022.

The venue, time and other details of the oath-taking “shall be announced later,” the SC said.

The examinations were held on Feb. 4 and 6.

The country has not produced a new lawyer since the Covid-19 pandemic.

An unnamed number of bar takers were earlier disqualified by the SC for violating the honor code. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
