Leonen says a good lawyer sees beyond oneself

Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen has some words of wisdom for aspiring lawyers who are waiting for the results of the Bar.

On Twitter, Leonen shared what he thinks are the qualities a good lawyer must possess, and that includes “seeing beyond oneself.”

“To be a lawyer is to choose to live a life of service. A good lawyer understands the value of patience and evolves the ability to critically see the law for what it is so that it can be shaped to achieve the ideal of social justice. To be a lawyer is to see beyond yourself,” he said.

Results of the 2018 Bar examinations will be released on May 3, so aspiring lawyers still have more time to reflect!
