Special advance Bar review

I read in the newspaper today that a tutorial center based in Cebu City is offering a Special Advance Bar Review from November 20, 2009 to January 31, 2010, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Featured lecturers are Dean Vincent Albano (Remedial Law, Civil Law, Political Law and Legal Ethics), Dean Eduardo Abella (Commercial Law), Dean Abelardo Estrada (Criminal Law), Prof. Benedict Guirey Kato (Labor Law) and Prof. Jason R. Barlis (Taxation Law).

The venue will be at the Richmond Plaza Hotel, F. Sotto Drive, Gorordo Avenue, Cebu City. Enrollment fee is P8,500.00 with 10% discount for those who will enroll on or before November 16. Contact numbers, in case you need further information, are (032) 267-7244, 0932-4837047.

If you know other advance review lectures, please share the information with us through the "comments" section.

I think advance review sessions are useful to those non-full-time law students or Bar reviewees who need to firm up or consolidate their knowledge of the law since they didn't have the luxury of focusing on their studies due to their main jobs or preoccupations. But this should only supplement, not substitute, the regular formal or self-review nearer to the Bar exam month. The mind remembers best that which is recently learned or observed.

Visit my Philippine Jurisprudence blog site

After a six-month hiatus, I'm back with updating this blog. I think I have already posted in this blog all necessary advices with regard to taking the Bar exams. If something comes up that I can share with law students and barristers, I'll post them here.

Lately, I want to focus more on providing digests of most recent jurisprudence. Except in some cases where I might write a full digest, mostly I will be posting basic principles of the cases and identifying what law subjects they fall under. This is to enable me to update my blog site regularly given my limited time. These digests can be found in my other related blog site:

I now work in a law office. So digesting jurisprudence benefits not only my readers (law students, barristers, lawyers) but most especially me because this is one way of keeping me up to date. If I have more time, I'll also digest classic and more recent landmark cases for the benefit of law students.

Good luck CompaƱeros!
