Muntinlupa City recognizes 2020-21 Bar passers, new lawyers urged to serve with integrity

Recently the City Government of Muntinlupa gave recognition to city residents who have passed the r2020-2021 Bar examinations.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi has lauded the 39 new lawyers in the city and has given them certificates of recognition during the LGU’s flag raising ceremony last this past Monday.

“We are very proud of your achievements and for the honor that you have given to Muntinlupa. We welcome our new attorneys as we serve the people,” Fresnedi said in the program.

Among the 39 Bar passers is Erika Rose Sanchez – Corro, daughter of Muntinlupa City Majority Floor Leader Coun. Atty. Raul Corro, who has given an emotional response during the ceremony.

Corro recounted the struggles that the bar takers, including herself, have experienced as they prepared for the examination such as postponed Bar exam schedules, lockdowns, health and emotional challenges brought about by pandemic.

She also extended her thanks to the City Government and the city’s frontliners for the local COVID-19 response including the extensive vaccination drive as it helped her prepare for the 2020-21 Bar exams.

Meanwhile, Corro also encouraged her fellow Bar passers to serve with integrity and serve the Filipino people.

“Passing the Bar exam is just the beginning. What matters is what we can do with the privilege and responsibility that were given to us. I hope that we will be lawyers in the service of others and with integrity,” Corro noted.
