Law Schools Crackdown

Law schools in the Philippines have mushroomed for the past decades that the number now has reached close to a thousand.  The Commission on Higher Education (CHED), however keeps its eyes keen to close law schools that have not produced lawyers for the past decade.

In the statement released yesterday, CHED announced that seven (7) law schools shall be closed next year for consistently getting zero in the Bar Exams for the past ten years.  The seven law schools are Abra Valley College in Abra,  Polytechnic College of La Union, Ramon Magsaysay Technological University in Zambalez,  East Central College in Pampanga, Southern Bicol College in Masbate, Eastern Samar State University, and Samar College in Western Samar.

CHED also said that those schools with passing rate of less than five (5) percent for the past ten years shall be on the watch list.
