The Supreme Court (SC) will continue to allow the signing of the roll of attorneys for new lawyers even on Friday (July 31) even though it has been declared a holiday by the government.

“I just wanted to inform all of you that despite the declared holiday tomorrow, the signing of the Roll of Attorneys for new lawyers will proceed tomorrow,” announced SC Spokesperson Brian Hosaka on Thursday (July 30).

President Rodrigo Duterte earlier declared this Friday a regular holiday in observance of Eid’l Adha, the Muslim Feast of Sacrifice.

The SC also earlier allowed the 2019 bar passers to avail the alternative signing of the roll of attorneys if they have difficulty traveling to Manila because of quarantine restrictions.

However, Clerk of Court and Bar Confidant Rosita Requillas-Nacional has advised those who which to avail the alternative procedure that they have to comply on or before August 7.

Otherwise, Nacional warned “failure of the affected bar passers to comply with the aforesaid undertaking within the prescribed period shall result in, among others, the immediate imposition of the appropriate administrative sanctions affecting one’s good standing as a member of the Philippine Bar.”

Under the alternative procedure, those having difficulty to travel to Manila to sign the roll of attorneys can send via postal money order the P3,850 bar admission and certification fees.

But they also have mail to the Office of the Bar Confidant (OBC) the required affidavit which includes “an undertaking to physically sign the Roll of Attorney and register their biometric information at the OBC located in the Supreme court premises…”

“Within ten working days from the receipt of the complete documentary requirements and full payment, the OBC shall send the Certificate of Membership to the Philippine Bar, bar rating, and official receipt to the bar passer’s email address. The bar passers shall be deemed to have been admitted to the practice of law on the date indicated on the aforesaid certificate,” the bar confidant said.
