THE UNIVERSITY will be one of the testing sites for the nationwide law school aptitude test on April 16, the Legal Education Board (LEB) announced last March 1.

On its official website, the LEB listed UST as the testing site in Metro Manila for the first Philippine Law School Admission Test (PhiLSAT).

Other sites chosen were the University of the Cordilleras, Aquinas University, University of San Agustin, University of San Jose-Recoletos, Jose Maria College and Xavier University, which will serve as testing sites in Baguio, Legazpi, Iloilo, Cebu, Davao and Cagayan de Oro cities, respectively.

The nationwide law school aptitude test was announced by the LEB last Dec. 29.

Faculty of Civil Law Dean Nilo Divina said LEB Chairman Emerson Aquende had talked to him about making UST a PhiLSAT testing site, but added that the venues were still subject to change.

“The chair of Legal Education Board already asked me and [I think] it is possible,” Divina said in an interview with the Varsitarian.

LEB has accredited the Center for Educational Measurement to be PhiLSAT’s test administrator.

PhiLSAT is a standardized series of tests intended to measure the academic potential of those who aim to study law, according to the Center for Educational Measurement’s website.

The online registration for the PhiLSAT opens today, March 2 and will close on April 3. The link for the registration is here.
