MANILA – The Supreme Court suspended work in all courts in Metro Manila on Wednesday due to typhoon ''Glenda.''

The SC Public Information Office, in its official Twitter account, said work is suspended for all courts in the National Capital Judicial Region (NCJR).

For non-NCJR courts, the discretion to suspend work is left with the executive judges, the SC said.

Because of the typhoon, the filing of applications for the Bar exam was also extended until Thursday, July 17.

The Office of the Bar Confidant will also be open today to receive applications.
