[LAW SCHOOL PHILIPPINES] What to Expect in Law School – Constitutional Law 1


Constitutional Law 1 is the first of the many subjects that fall under Political Law. Political Law, on the other hand is typically the first exam given on the morning of the first Sunday of the Bar Exam. Maraming bumabagsak sa Constitutional Law 1 hindi dahil mahirap ang subject, kundi dahil hindi natatapos sa dapat basahin.

Madalas natatambakan na ng mga kaso, nakikinig na lang sa klase at pilit na babalikan pero hindi na rin talaga kinakaya. Marami ring pumapasa pero nganga pag-dating ng fourth year. Maano ba naman kasing major cramming ang naganap, ay may maaalala ka pa ba after ng final exam mo four years ago?
