The Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) has once again proven its excellence in legal education, as it secured the 3rd spot among the top-performing law schools in the recently conducted 2022 Bar Exam.
With a total of 67 schools in the category of law school with 11 to 50 candidates, PUP Law School garnered an exemplary 93.10% passing rate. This remarkable achievement is the result of the university’s commitment to providing quality education and producing competent graduates.
In anticipation of the release of the Bar Exam results, the Office of the Dean, under the leadership of Dean Gemy Lito Festin, shared a message to congratulate and welcome the new PUPian lawyers.
“As lawyers, serve with humility and competence. Be the vectors of justice in your own localities and uphold the virtues of the legal profession,” the message read.
The Dean emphasized the importance giving back to the community as “iskolar ng bayan” using their knowledge and skills to help those who are in need of legal assistance.
After passing the rigorous Bar Exam, the new batch of lawyers is gearing up for their oath-taking ceremony and the signing of the Roll of Attorneys. The event is scheduled to take place on May 2, 2023, at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City.
