JURISTS BAR EXAMINEES IMPRESS IN TOUGH 2018 BAR
Jurists Bar Review burnished its reputation as the top bar review center in the country when 665 Jurists bar candidates made the grade in a grueling and nerve-wracking 2018 bar examination. The 665 new Jurists lawyers comprise 37% of the total bar passers. The 2018 bar was one of the toughest in recent memory with only 1,800 out of 8,158 (22%) being granted leave by the Supreme Court to inscribe their names in the roll of attorneys.
Team Jurists’ stellar performance was underscored by its domination of the top ten places with five slots being bagged by Jurists barristers.
4th Daniel John A. Fordan 85.44% (Ateneo de Manila University)
5th Katrina Monica C. Gaw 85.42% (Ateneo de Manila University)
6th Nadaine P. Tongco 85.03% (University of the Philippines)
9th Jebb Lynus Q. Cane 84.80% (University of San Carlos)
10th Alen Joel R. Pita 84.69% (University of San Carlos) The sparkling performance of Team Jurists follows close on the heels of another stupendous showing in the 2017 bar where nine Jurists bar candidates placed in the top twenty.
Hail to the new Jurists lawyers! Your Jurists Family is so proud of and happy for each and every one of you. Godspeed!
