Malacanang extends its greetings to the 2017 Bar Exam passers, especially its top nochers.
This year, most of the Top 10 passers came from the provinces. Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella said that he is hoping that these new lawyers will choose a career in government instead of opting for private practice.
Abella added that the country needs intelligent lawyers in helping the country progress.
Malacanang hopes that these new lawyers will have solid integrity, which is the most important part of being a great lawyer.
