hi, I need your opinion in order for me to decide much better...I am already 43 years old, family man, a civil engr by profession, a real estate broker. I want to take law , maybe in 2015. Am I too old for this career? Is there any age limit for a lawyer to practice law? thanks.

no, there's no age limit. i recommend you get into the best law school that you can, one with a high passing rate in the bar. good luck

@strongwind, I used to have a classmate (who passed the bar same batch as I am) who was 48. We also had a classmate who was 62 and another who was 55. Didn't hear anything of them na kung mga lawyers na din.

this reminds me of a text from Facebook for posting sa FB wall ko sounds like this.

" i think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer".

i hope lahat ng naging lawyers ay nakita nila ang kasagutan sa kanilang pinangarap.
was it the answer or not?
anyone?

read the life of atty domondon as inspiration - http://www.ustcivillaw.com/?page_id=2812

if you will take law now, how can you take 2015 bar? you'll take it in 2 yrs preparation? maybe in 2017 or 2018 though.

good luck po

Education is a continuous learning and there's no age limit in the study of law.
I have a friend, he was 43yo when he enrolled in first year. During the first semester of our third year, he topped in all our exams. I mean, in ALL our subjects.

Good day everyone!

I would like to raise questions related to the topic.

How long does it take for a second courser (law being the second degree) to finish assuming all subjects are passed?

What is the average tuition per semester?

Is there internship too?

How many bar exam schedules do we have in a year?

How much to spend for review and the exam days? Please share an estimate.

How many days to answer the exam?

Thank you very much.


G
What are these days? How many hours?
