began with PHILJA hardly breaking its stride after having had a
good run in 2012. Two consecutive Orientation Seminar-Workshops for
Newly Appointed Judges (the 64th and the 65th) and one Orientation
Seminar for Newly Appointed Clerks of Court (the 25th) opened the year.
The JCEP or the Judicial Career Enhancement Program for Judges, one of
the PHILJA core programs, was also conducted for magistrates in Region
IX and in Region III.
