take the bar subjects first... persons, crim and consti... they are requisites to some subject and provides you with the needed foundation for your study of law. I even have classmates taking full load eventhough they're working full time. Mind you they're doing good plus our lawschool is consistently in the top 10 of the bar.

kunin mo muna ung mga bar subjects, persons, criminal law and constitution, honestly, talagang magaadjust ka i can't assure you that it will be a walk in the park and dont think ahead of the following semester, sabi mo nga, you are testing the water kaya you take the said subject and at the end of the semester you can evaluate your capability since you gone through the bar subject this semester.

I bet sa San Beda ka mag-aaral no? I advise you na kunin mo yung three major subjects! Persons, Crim and Consti at yung Sem pampataas ng QPI yun.. Im also a working student, although I failed my Crim subj nung 1st year kasi nag full load ako.. pero kung di ako full load I think kaya naman kunin yung 3 major! you can do it!

I commiserate with you djm. Like you, I'm also a full-time employee in the Government service and studied law full load. I work as an Engineer II in the Provincial Planning Office. The job description requires me to work even on weekends because of the bulk of the workload notwithstanding domestic family matters.

My job not only requires me to prepare plans but also to prepare project proposals and feasibility studies which requires a lot of research and paper works.

I halted my studies because when I was about to enter 3rd year in my law studies, I was nominated by our office to take a postgraduate course in tourism in an Australian University (of course after a meticulous screening and passing of IELTS).

I'm now back from the one-year scholarship and now discovers that a considerable amount of workload has been added to my already bulked job description. For the meantime it dawned on me not to enroll yet for 3rd year law for I assessed myself to be weak in other subjects in my 1st and 2nd years in law class. I've got low grades in those subjects because of my very limited time.

I opt to continue my 3rd year in June 2014 hopefully after I shall have reviewed for 1 year the subjects which I had low grades. I know I can at least get good grades in all the subjects if only I have the luxury of time reading and studying them.

To you djm and other working law students: if I did it in my 1st and 2nd year full-loaded studies, so can you. Just devise a strategy to manage your time for full-time work, family and full-time studies. Pray to God earnestly about this. Good luck.

Nakakaenganyo po yung mga posts nyo dito.

I'm also planning to pursue law school as a full time student pero baka hindi makaya ng utak ko. I need to keep my job to help my family and sustain my law school studies.

May mga tips ho ba kung anong dapat i-expect while on law school, like readings, study habits, time management na pwede nyong i-impart for us aspirants?

I am currently enrolled in law school taking full load of regular subjects. I am working full time so I am enrolled in the working class that conduct classes in the evening.

Base on my experience, it is hard to work full time and at the same time enrolled full load. But, it is manageable. I was able to pass all my subjects in the first sem. I work from 8am - 5pm then my classes usually start at 6pm and end at 8pm/9pm from monday to friday plus a saturday class.

In my instance, I would not be able to read the textbook. I resort to reading reviewers. for the cases, I read the case digests. I had a professor who required us to read the case in its original form so i have to double my effort reading those cases in the original form.

With the kind of setup i have, time management is very important. I may not have an eight-hour sleep everyday but I try to take a nap whenever it is possible just to take a rest. I also do not forget to keep my self healthy because sickness is a big NO NO.

Discipline is a big factor for working students enrolled in a law school. Know your priorities.

I hope this would encourage you. If you could enroll full load, then do it. But plan eveything very well and be WISE. Smile


By the way, I am from UST FCL.

Thank you Sir Monderey. I was seriously considering the FCL before but then I perished the thought of enrolling for AY 2013-2014 knowing I was not financially/emotionally prepared as well. Right now I'm still not financially and emotionally prepared but knowing someone made it through matters to me greatly.

Well, reading from PEX and from here as far as I know a full load is something that is expected especially from the university I am aiming for, though universally I am expecting a full load from any university I'll be going. I'm working in the night shift currently and while the job is taxing, it is manageable.

About the cases, I'm mystified at the General Records published online. I'm just reading them for pleasure though.

Right now I need to train on time management, speed reading, self-discipline and finding my way out.

I hope God will help us.

Sir Monderey, can you PM me how much you spent with the FCL? Do they accept downpayments and staggered amounts? And what range do classes start during the day?

How about their major exams (midterms, finals), do they fall on weekends also?

Arresto Menor
Yes, if you enrolled on the all weekend sched. Working programs also offer week nights schedules, hence, if you enroll on weeknights you have to take your exams on weeknights too, as scheduled.
