Question: Is an LLB/MD degree considered as equivalent to Master’s Degree?
Yes. For purposes of appointment to positions which require a Master’s Degree, an LLB or MD degree holder is considered to have met the education requirement as long as the position does not require the appointee to be a licensed professional.
Completion of the degrees of Bachelor of Laws and Doctor of Medicine from a CHED-recognized institution shall be considered appropriate education for appointment to division chief positions or positions requiring a master’s degree the duties of which do not involve the practice of profession covered by bar/board laws.
