For Duterte, Ateneo is the best law school in the Philippines…after San Beda
President Rodrigo Duterte thinks Ateneo is the best law school in the Philippines…after his alma mater, San Beda.
Duterte showed his Red Lion pride while endorsing one his senatorial bets, former Metro Manila Development Authority Chief Francis Tolentino
“Si Tolentino. Bachelor of Laws sa Ateneo Law School. Ah, sunod ito sa San Beda, hindi pwedeng magtaas ito. After San Beda, the best school is Ateneo,” said Duterte in a speech.
Although Duterte is proud of getting through law with a barely passing average of 75, he was in awe of Tolentino’s achievements as an abogado, including passing the New York bar.
“P*** bilib ako. Ako isa lang, Francis, bar lang talaga. Maski pakunin mo pa ako ng eligibility, babagsak pa ako,” said Duterte.
