This is in line with Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III’s statement that licensure exams, including the Bar examination, should be abolished.

In an interview, Gesmundo said: “I don’t see the need to abolish the Bar exam. We must continue having the Bar exam.”

He added: “I respect Secretary Bello’s opinion but as far as I am concerned, we should maintain the Bar exams so that we can test qualifications of those who aspire to join the legal profession. The legal profession is vested with public interest. And we should see to it that only those who are fit and qualified to join the ranks of the legal profession meet the standards required of them.”

It is also stated in the law that those who want to become lawyers must pass the said exam.

“There’s a specific rule under the Rules of Court that provides the mandatory taking of Bar exams as well as its coverage so for as long as it is in the Rules of Court, we have to comply with it,” he said.
