Bersamin, who has been a member of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines for 45 years, 32 of those years devoted to service in the Judiciary, says that he “will regard this conferment as a great moment of my career in law and the academe, and as the singular recognition of the long service I had rendered to our country and our people as a private practitioner, humble trial and appellate judge, and now as the Chief Justice of the Philippine.
“The conferment logically includes a bonus for me – I am thereby made an alumnus of this great institution of learning, the University of Cebu,” he continued.
