In a related development, the HNU College of Law conducted a comprehensive examination last June 30, 2008 among its new enrollees in the first year. The test, called "Law School Qualifying Test," was administered by the Center for Educational Measurement of Cebu City. The examination was done for the purpose of evaluating the capabilities of the freshmen students in the study of law so that proper academic advice and adjustments can be provided for them as they progress through the course. This program will ensure better preparations for admission to the bar.
Another step taken by the college for the enhancement of students' abilities is the holding of a contest debate and an oratorical contest on August 22, 2008 at HNU main gym. In the debate, representatives of the first and fourth year classes will form one team and those of the second and third year classes will form another team. The contests are among the highlights of the Law Days scheduled this August 22 and 23, 2008.
