The other method is by joining a law degree program immediately after high school. Another method to do this would be to combine the two degree programs which might result in a longer studying time. For example, you can do a course that goes by the name B. Comm. / LLB which will mean that you are doing commerce and law at the same time. List of Colleges in Philippines offering Law studies
