CJ Bersamin Harbors Highest Hopes for the University of Cebu Graduating Law Class of 2019

April 16, 2019

Chief Justice Lucas P. Bersamin keynotes the University of Cebu (UC) School of Law 2019 Commencement Exercises on April 15, 2019 at the Waterfront Hotel, Cebu City. Chief Justice Bersamin reminds the law graduates not to be daunted 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.” (Photo and caption courtesy of the SC Public Information Office)
