Tomic Apacible on Balane’s teaching: Beyond passing the Bar, passion for law
Young abogado Tomic Apacible paid tribute to Civil Law expert and professor Ruben Balane after his passing saddened the community. The abogado talked about what a huge loss it is as he is one of the greatest academics.
Sad day for the legal community. Atty. Balane never taught his students to pass the bar exams (he didn't believe in it and even hated it), but to instill passion for the law. Rest in Peace.

Hard shoes to fill!
