THE Supreme Court (SC) junked a petition pushing for the use of laptops during the Bar Examinations.
In a full court resolution on April 1, 2014, the SC denied the petition filed by a certain Cora Amarga.
The court said there is no valid and convincing reason to grant the petition to use a laptop in answering the bar examinations.
“The court resolved, upon the recommendation of the Office of the Bar Confidant, to deny the present petition of Cora Amarga for permission to use a laptop for answering the 2014 bar examinations, there being no valid and convincing reason to grant the same,” the resolution, signed by clerk of court Enriqueta Vidal, read.
Amarga filed a similar petition in 2007 which was also denied by the high court.
In some countries, bar examinees are allowed to use their own laptops with certain restrictions on the use of certain programs.
