UP Law tops 2015 bar

For 2015, UP Law once again dominates the bar examinations! Not only did we top the bar, we also clinched the 3rd, 6th, and 9th spots!

More importantly, UP was the best performing law school in the bar exams this year, with an 89.9% overall passing rate (and an astounding 90% passing rate for first time takers). Truly a remarkable showing! I am so, so proud of all our bar passers, especially considering the reduced amount of time for their review thanks to the academic calendar shift. Through the seemingly insurmountable odds! How inspiring! Indeed, performing the only way we know how - in the grand manner.


Our sis, Giselle Hernandez, placed 6th and we couldn't be any prouder! We are actually not surprised - she has consistently performed well in her studies, and has been such a force to be reckoned with in our sorority's acad committee. No doubt, she was our bar bet! Super, super happy for her, especially because she's one of the nicest, funniest, and most deserving persons I know. 

We also have 23 sisses who passed this year! Doing the BarOps is always the most challenging part of the first semester, but seeing our sisters triumph is in itself the biggest, most satisfying reward. There is no greater feeling than knowing a sis you helped out is now reaping the rewards of her hard work and dedication. This year was particularly a daunting task since we had more sisses taking the bar compared to last year. But we did it, and all our efforts paid off! What a way to cap off our Portia Week. #PortianAndProud!

Congratulations to all the new lawyers! Your achievement is just as much yours as it is the country's. I hope you all use your new titles for the service of the people and of those most in need. You all inspire the rest of us. Kudos!
