Preparing for the bar exam is very similar to preparing for a prize fight. A fighter’s chance to succeed greatly depends on his trainer’s competence and comprehension of three things: the game, the opponent, and the fighter himself. As I was preparing for the 2011 Bar Exam (the game), the first ever MCQ Bar Exam (the opponent), I knew I had to be wise in choosing which review center to attend to. I needed a review school that would not only refresh or polish my knowledge of the law, but one which would also focus on training me on how to approach the MCQ exam. JURISTS was near perfect at “knowing the enemy”. We had extensive training on how to approach every type of multiple choice question, how to manage your time as well as the “science” of guessing, in case you had no idea what the answer was.
Atty. John Francis D. Dela Paz
The essay training was equally amazing. Early in the review, my bar exam coach pointed out some weaknesses in my writing so that I could improve the same. I listened and applied what she said. Towards the end of the review, my essay mock bar grade dramatically increased. The result, I had so much confidence in facing the essay part of the 2011 Bar exams.
The journey to becoming a lawyer is indeed a tedious one. Towards the end of my journey, i was fortunate to be with JURISTS. Enrolling in JURISTS is no assurance that you will conquer the Bar Exam (NO review school/center can EVER assure that); but it is an assurance that come first Sunday of the bar, you will have the confidence, courage, and faith to face the enemy head on because you know that you had THE BEST training at JURISTS.
I never had any second thoughts on what review school I will enroll myself into after graduation. Whenever I was asked on the matter, I only had one answer: “JURISTS REVIEW CENTER!”
I never doubted the competence and primacy of JURISTS even amidst all the confusion on the inaugural MCQ bar examination. I was sure that whatever happens, JURISTS can withstand the change and will prove that it is the best bar review center in the country.
True to its commitment, JURISTS provided me with the much needed guidance during the review period. The change from the essay to the multiple choice type of exam never posed any threat in the teaching expertise of the lecturers. From start to finish, JURISTS stood as a fortress, a bastion of knowledge from which I learned everything about the law. And come examination time, I knew I was ready!
At this point I want to thank the JURISTS family. I would not have attained my dream without all of you. Sincerest gratitude to Professor Manuel Riguera, our idol, our mentor, and most of all, our friend. I feel so proud that I made history with the best bar review center in the Philippines!!!Atty. Ros Criswin V. Formoso

Jurists review class schedule was a perfect match to my review strategy. I read the topics on weekdays, and on weekends, the Jurists excellent team of reviewers enriched my understanding of the laws. They told us how to approach each and every concept so we can grasp its relevance to any question that may be asked.
The jurisprudence classes helped me a lot during the bar exams. Just to name a few, remedial law was a breeze because the first question has been discussed by no less than Atty. Manny Riguera himself. Some questions were even the same examples he gave during the review! It was as if he was the examiner. The exact case applicable in legal opinion was likewise discussed to us by Atty. Elmer Rabuya. Coincidence? No. That’s how exemplary the reviewers at Jurists are.Atty. Mary Grace Lao Sabong, CPA

With the introduction of the MCQ and Memorandum writing in the 2011 Bar exam, I found it imperative to enroll in Jurists Bar Review Center to help me prepare for the exam.

Sir first of all, nagpapasalamat po ako sa buong grupo ng Jurists Bar Review for the fantastic support and dedication you’ve shown to us.

Jurists had been one of the best supports I had during my bar journey. They had the best set of lecturers, wonderful and really helpful materials, very accommodating staff, and the coaching sessions were great. I think that the 3-paragraph rule of Jurists became really effective during the Memo and Legal Opinion exams. And the lectures were literally ringing in my ears during the exams! My deepest thanks to the BEST REVIEW SCHOOL IN THE WORLD. JURISTS!Atty. Geomelyn Sarah D. Sacramento
The reform made during the 2011 Bar Examinations really got me worried. For four years, we were trained to answer essay-type questions only to find out later on that we’ll be doing an MCQ-type exam and a Trial Memorandum and Legal Opinion writing format. I chose Jurists because of its one-on-one coaching not just for the Trial Memo and Leg Op part but also for the MCQ as well. During our sessions, my coach was able to point out my strengths and weaknesses when answering. I asked questions and made clarifications right away. I won’t be able to know all those things and equip myself for the big battle ahead without the help of Jurists.Atty. Angelica Anne B. Recto
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Jurists Bar Review Center for helping me pass the 2011 Bar Examinations. The main reason why I chose Jurists is because of its one-on-one coaching program and I am so blessed that the one who coached me in the Legal Opinion was no less than the man himself, Atty. Manuel Riguera. He may not know me personally but I have always felt the family atmosphere right from day one. The mock bar examinations were difficult but equally gratifying on my part as I was able to determine my strengths and weaknesses early on.
Last year when I browsed the Jurists website, I came across at the testimonials section and read all those inspiring stories and testimonies. Now, you’ve stumbled across my own testimony and I am proud to say that Jurists is not just a review center, but also a family and an ally.Atty. Mark John M. Soriquez

My heartfelt thanks to you and the staff of Jurist Bar review. Thank you very much.Atty. Federico Magpantay Jr.
