Challenging the California Bar Exams
by Atty. Flomy J. Diza
When brod Novo sent me a private message on my FB to contribute an article to the newly created TKP website, I asked him of any specific topic.

With the hope of minimizing misunderstanding, I will follow the advice of an ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates, who said: “If you want to speak with me, define your terms.” So let us define our terms and, at the same time, delimit the topic. (Read more)
