Bersamin: Don’t let Bar exams intimidate you
Chief Justice Lucas P. Bersamin delivered the keynote address during the commencement exercise of the University of Cebu (UC) School of Law last Monday at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City.
Bersamin reminded the law graduates not to be intimidated by the Bar examinations and instead enthusiastically embrace the same “for they are but the rungs of the ladder rising in your path to a life in the profession of law.”
“You will be among many thousands of hopefuls in search of your Holy Grail in the law. In that search, many before you have failed and fallen. Still, I do not expect that fate of failure to befall you because your time and study in UC Law will enable you to pull through. And if, by God’s will, you do hurdle the Bar examinations, only then will you be entitled to claim the title of Attorney-at-Law, and assume it after taking the Lawyer’s Oath,” he said.
