The Shari’ah Bar Examinations are administered to allow Muslim professionals to qualify and practice before the Shari’ah Courts in the Philippines.

The Shari’ah Courts were constituted under Presidential Decree 1083 or the Code of Muslim Personal Laws of the Philippines.

The Shari’ah courts are courts of justice that have original jurisdiction over cases involving violations of PD 1083.
