I’ve just stumbled upon your site while searching for a tutorial on an related subject. Glad I did too. There’s a lot I like. Anyway, you’ve been bookmarked and I’ll be back soon.

Top Law Schools in the Philippines

Table 1 enumerates the Commission on Higher Education’s top performing law schools in the country for the past 10 years (1999-2009) based on the bar exam passing rates.  It is worth mentioning that this listing was taken from a blog posted in http://www.mukamo.com/top-performing-law-schools-in-the-philippines/ dated September 24, 2009.  These information were likewise affirmed by two other sites, namely: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Law-Schools-in-the-Philippines-Top-10-Law-Schools-in-the Philippines and http://www.ehow.com/list_6021675_law-schools-philippines.html.

  1. Dear Sir/Madam:

    I am looking to contract a senior law student to research (this is case research only, we are not looking for a qualified legal opinion, at this time) a property issue for me, and hopefully find some precedent decisions. I can only pay 100 pesos per hour.

    Can you forward this to the appropriate teacher for distribution to a recommended student.
