Joan de Venecia to Bar 2018 ‘warriors’: ‘Give ’em hell!’
Atty. Joan de Venecia shares an inspiring message and insights about the overall conduct of the Bar exam. The abogada emphasized that it takes a warrior to conquer the examinations. Contrary to popular belief, Bar season is all about dreams and measuring one important quality in a lawyer: Grit.
De Venecia claimed that it is not a tool used to determine what the intentions or the goals of an individual is as soon as they become a member of the profession. The abogada believes that it only measures grit, adeptness to multi-tasking and mental stamina.
The abogada noted that there is beauty in following dreams that sprout in the midst of widespread “bayanihan” or volunteerism. She stated that it is unfair to burden law schools or the Bar exam for values formation since that needs to happen musch earlier in life.
Oo nga, why blame a test?
