    Palace to 2019 bar passers: uphold the law, protect people’s rights

    MANILA, Philippines – Malacañang Palace on Wednesday urged all passers of the 2019 bar exam to uphold the law at all times and use it to protect people’s rights.

    Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, a lawyer, told successful examinees to keep in mind that they studied law because of their ideal that the legal profession is a “noble profession.”

    Roque also encouraged the new batch of lawyers to consider a career in government.

    "This would be a great opportunity to give back to the community for earning the privilege to practice law in the country," he said.

    Meanwhile, Roque advised those who did not pass the exams not to be disheartened.

    "To those who are not fortunate in their attempt, my advice as a professor of law, is not let the results dishearten them. Continue to believe in their passion," he said.

    The Supreme Court announced that 2,103 out of 7,685 examinees (27.36%) who completed the bar exam in November 2019 passed.

    Mae Diane Azores of the University of Santo Tomas in Legaspi aced the bar with 91.049%.
