19th Pre-Judicature Program
A total of 63 lawyers from all over the country, mostly from Metro Manila, enrolled in the 19th Pre-Judicature Program which was conducted by the Philippine Judicial Academy (PHILJA) on 22 February to 5 March 2010 at the College of St. Benilde Hotel, Malate, Manila.
For 10 days, the participants brainstormed on different substantive and procedural laws, with a judicial approach. Distinguished lecturers of the Academy updated them with the latest developments in law and jurisprudence.
After the series of lectures, the assiduous participants took the Written Evaluative Exercise (WEE) to test their knowledge on the subjects discussed.
The successful graduates who completed the ten-day program and passed the WEE also qualified for possible nomination by the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) to judicial positions. They also earned 15 units towards a Master of Laws degree at the San Beda College Graduate School of Law.
