Simondo admitted that getting a 91.05 score was “something I didn't expect.” Along with over bar exam hopefuls, he was also keeping his fingers crossed when the announcement was made.

I did not expect it.”

The La Salle alumnus admitted that growing up, he was already an achiever but law school was different. Simondo said, “I did graduate with honors during my high school and college years, but law school is different.”

When asked for his motivation on why he took up law, Simondo had a more personal answer, he wanted to stay in the country.

He said, “I took up law because my parents were pressuring me to go abroad. I felt that the Philippines is where I should be. I needed a job that would justify my stay here.”

“I was looking at medicine, accountancy or law. I ruled out medicine because I know I wouldn't be good in a hospital. In the end I decided I would go for law,” he added.

Simondo's future looks very bright right now as he topped the country's most prestigious exam. When asked for his future plans, the topnotcher is still looking at finding his place in corporate law. He said, “I am open to position in public service but I really like corporate law. But I hear that corporate law practice here in Bacolod is limited.”

Now, that he is a full fledged lawyer, Simondo shared that he is committed in upholding the law. He stated, “I will do my utmost to promote justice in this country. At the end of the day we are still a nation of law and not of men. I will do my part in upholding the rule of law.”

Bar Examination 2017

Out of the 6,750 examinees, only 1,724 examinees successfully (25.55%) passed the 2017 Bar Examination. This year's passing rate is 25.55%.

The 2017 Bar Examination had also its share of controversies. Several examinees noticed that some questions in Legal Ethics were verbatimly copied from previous bar exams.

Associate Justice Marvic Leonen consider the complaint a "serious" accusation but judicial staff head Pia Bersamin brushed off the issue.

Family claims doctor's death linked to Dengvaxia



MANILA, Philippines - A doctor from Binalonan, Pangasinan who has received all three shots of the controversial vaccine, Dengvaxia died on Sunday, April 22.

Kendrick Gotoc, a consultant in a rural health unit in Quezon City reportedly died of a heart attack but his family is suspecting that Dengvaxia is connected to his death.

According to Gotoc’s family, the doctor only revealed to them recently that had received the complete dose of Dengvaxia two years ago as a requirement . Ryan Gotoc, Kendrick's brother stated, “Noong time na ni-reveal niya yung regarding sa pagkaturok ng dengvaxia, kasi ni-required sila ng DOH na magpa-inject. Kailangan mananagot yung mga taong dapat na managot sa ganitong klaseng sistema na ginawa nila.”

Norma, Kendrick's mother also noticed the changes in her son's appearance. Before he died, the doctor lost weight and suffered headaches, stomach pains and skin rashes.

She said, “Napansin ko sa kaniya sa katawan niya, pumuputing-puti na at tsaka may pantal-pantal na parang kagat ng langgam throughout the body. Saka payat na payat siya.”

Kendrick also had six patients inoculated with Dengvaxia and they too eventually died. He had been working on a medicap report about the vaccine before his death and the family will forward it to the proper agency.

Despite refusing an autopsy, the Gotoc family said they have laboratory results that would support their claim that Dengvaxia is connected to Kendrick's death.

Meanwhile, Ana Ma. Teresa de Guzman, provincial health officer said that it's too early to conclude that Dengvaxia is responsible for Kendrick's death. She suggested the family should forward the laboratory results to National Bureau of Investigation, Department of Health and the Quezon City health office where Kendrick worked.

PAO vs DOH

Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) chief Persida Acosta urged the Department of Health not to discount the possibility that Gotoc's death is related to Dengvaxia.

She claimed that it's hard to miss that Gotoc’s symptoms were similar to the other 46 Dengvaxia victims. Acosta said, “Based po sa clinical records at clinical signs na kinukwento noong kapatid at nanay ay halos pareho po doon sa nangyari doon sa mga bata, doon sa 47 na autopsy ng PAO.”

Health Secretary Francisco Duque slammed Acosta's claims saying, “Hindi ko alam kung anong basis nila, bakit nila sinasabi na Dengvaxia ang nag cause noong death. Bakit, mayroong autopsy na bang ginawa? Meron na bang kompletong pagsusuri na ginawa? Wala pa naman.”

Acosta revealed that PAO and the Gotoc family have yet to schedule the autopsy.

The 2017 bar exam covered eight (8) pillars: Political Law and Public International Law (15%), Labor and Social Legislation (10%), Civil Law (15%), Taxation (10%), Mercantile Law (15%), Criminal Law (10%), Remedial Law (20%) and Legal and Judicial Ethics (5%).

In previous examinations, the all-time high 59.06% passing rate made a buzz. In addition, all topnotchers were from provincial schools. University of San Carlos' Karen Mae Calam topped the bar with a rating of 89.05%.

The Philippine bar examinations, dubbed as the most prestigious professional licensure exam in the country for aspiring lawyers, is the only professional exam not handled by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). It is exclusively supervised by the Supreme Court.

The SC conducts the Bar examinations pursuant to Article VIII, Section 5 of the Constitution which provides that it shall have the power to promulgate rules governing the admission to the practice of law.

The tough examination has the usual passing rate of 20% to 30%.

Congratulations to our new lawyers!

Note: Traditionally, names of those who have hurdled the exam are being flashed on a widescreen at the Supreme Court. Results can be viewed simultaneously on SC's official website.

COVERAGE OF EXAM

The 2017 bar exam is composed of eight (8) subjects: Political Law and Public International Law (15%), Labor and Social Legislation (10%), Civil Law (15%), Taxation (10%), Mercantile Law (15%), Criminal Law (10%), Remedial Law (20%) and Legal and Judicial Ethics (5%).

Examinees were tasked to answer open-ended questions in long hand. Those questions, carefully selected by the committee, are formulated to test analytical ability, facility in expression in terms of written argument, comprehension of basic principles of law, and grasp of jurisprudence.

PREVIOUS BAR EXAM

In the 2016 exam, a record-breaking 59.06% passing rate was hit (3,747 out of 6,344 examinees). This was a historic high for at least 30 years. All topnotchers came from the provincial law schools, dominating the usual top performing NCR-based schools. University of San Carlos' Karen Mae Calam aced the bar with a rating of 89.05%.

PHILIPPINE BAR EXAM OVERVIEW

The Philippine bar examinations, dubbed as the most prestigious professional licensure exam in the country for aspiring lawyers, is the only professional exam not handled by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). It is exclusively supervised by the Supreme Court.

The SC conducts the Bar examinations pursuant to Article VIII, Section 5 of the Constitution which provides that it shall have the power to promulgate rules governing the admission to the practice of law.

Congratulations to our new lawyers!
