The Provincial Board has requested the Legal Education Board (LEB) of the Palawan State University (PSU) School of Law to conduct a regular Philippine Law School Admission Test (PHILSAT) in Palawan.
Board Member David Francis Ponce de Leon said in his approved resolution that Palawan is in need of more lawyers to contribute to the justice system.
“The province of Palawan needs more lawyers to sufficiently serve the province’s justice system and contribute to the administration of justice in the country,” Ponce de Leon said.
He said that having a regular PHILSAT in Palawan will attract and encourage students to study law.
“This resolution will help those who want to enroll in the law school to expand their knowledge,” he said.
PHILSAT is a nationwide one-day aptitude exam that was established by LEB for the assessment purposes of any aspiring law students.
The exam is held every April and September. Last September 29, PSU hosted the first PHILSAT in Palawan.
