Although not quite on the same magnitude as the elections, the release of the Bar Exam results on the 26th of April drew similar levels of uncontained excitement, joy, and anticipation that welcomed a new batch of lawyers.
For all its worth, this enthusiasm feels justified especially as the prestigious Bar exam is considered as, if not the toughest, one of the most difficult tests in the country, known for selecting only the best and the brightest of the country’s law graduates each year. Indeed, after years spent toiling in law schools and long hours of intense preparation, these individuals can now call themselves lawyers. The road, however, is not a singular path and for some, they have decided to pursue the road less taken. These include three Bar Exam passers and now rightfully called attorneys: Atty. Oliver Tuazon, Atty. Laurence Soriao, and Atty. Kyle Bollozos.
