Galing! John Molo praises Joan De Venecia for ‘defeatist lawyers’ comment
UP Law Professor John Molo praised Bar topnotcher and UP Law valedictorian, Joan De Venecia for her hard-hitting comments against defeatist attitude for some lawyers. The abogado said that her indignation against it makes perfect sense given the profession they are in.
As usual, Joan De Venecia (UP Law Valedictorian, Bar Topnotcher) makes perfect sense.
I see several of her fellow General Counsel (lawyers for top companies) agree w her on this. Looks like being a “defeatist” lawyer is bad for career and business prospects. pic.twitter.com/PzswzSMrLF

Molo echoed her opinion that having a defeatist attitude makes for a bad career and business prospects. De Venecia explained that no one really wants to hire an abogado who quickly gives up without putting up a fight.
The abogados mentioned this after quoting one unnamed lawyer for saying that China should be kept as a friend because we are no match for their warring competence.
