Applicants need to regularlycheck their Bar Application Registration System and Tech Assistance (BARISTA) account for updates on their application and examination venue.

The Office of the Bar Confidant (OBC) will also email the registrants regarding issues with their documents or whether they already need to send the Supreme Court physical copies of their uploaded documents.

Matters regarding the guidelines and rules of conduct for the 2024 Bar Examinations will be announced in subsequent Bar bulletins.
