Reviews of Bachelor of Laws graduates:

O. I.
◈ Studied Bachelor of Laws
◈ At University of Mindanao
◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletWhy did I choose Laws: Taking up LLb was purely my brother's inkling (who was already a lawyer that time), encouraged me to try just one semester, and before I know it, I am already preparing for the bar exams.

list bulletAbout my college education: The best way I can describe lawschool is what I wrote in our yearbook. The four years of it is like a candy four-layers coated. You need a great deal of patience and perseverance to survive the rigors of it. Tons and tons and tons of reading materials to go to. Almost endless hours digesting caselaws, and not to mention the casualty rate in the bar exams.

list bulletMy current job: Partner in a law firm

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Every word taught in lawschool is a must to be digested and absorbed.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: 3 months after passing the bar exams

list bulletDo I recommend studying Laws: If you are up for the rigors, challenge and hardwork, enter law school. But if you get easily frustrated, TAKE IT OFF YOUR LIST. If you so decide however to enter the field of law, countless opportunities awaits.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Should you chose to study law, manage your time wisely.
