Today, January 29, 2011 is the last day of Midterm exams for First Year Law Students at the University of the East - College of Law. Luckily, I have only one exam scheduled for today because my other four subjects were already done the early part of the week.
But my last exam proved to be the longest and most exhausting one, the exam was made not for a two-hour exam but I think you need more than five hours to accomplished. The five pleadings alone would eat up around 2 hours - you need to prepare with your own facts a Criminal Case Complaint as well as a Counter-Affidavit, then a Civil Case Complaint and the Answer to that. Both criminal and civil case pleadings have different set of facts. And add to that the pleading Demurer to Evidence.
It's not that you can not think of how to create your pleadings, but what will matter is the exhaustion in thinking as well as in writing down the pleadings and also the time allotted to finish the exam.
But as they say, if there are hardships, there will be success. And if there are evil, the good are just around.
Despite to all what happened this week, I am still thankful for everything. Thank you God for the week that had past. Thank you for keeping us in your guidance!
