MANILA, Sept. 5 — Senator Francis Escudero on Saturday wished thousands of men and women taking the Bar examinations this year good luck, saying may they find strength, wisdom and perseverance to prevail over this last hurdle before becoming bona fide lawyers.

”Exactly 16 years ago, I was in the same place as all of you, studying hard and praying fervently that my preparations and hard work were enough to earn for myself a career in the legal profession and the right and privilege to be called a lawyer,” Escudero said in a statement on Saturday.

He further said: ”On the eve of Bar exams, I also remind all Bar examinees that as future lawyers of the land, you will carry on your shoulders the responsibility of promoting the public good.”

”As lawyers, you will become the vanguards of justice, equality and democracy. We are a nation of laws, and, as such, the fabric of our laws are strengthened by moral and proper application,“ he also noted.

According to Escudero, who is also a lawyer, everytime the law is applied judiciously and equitably, democracy is strengthened and this is the challenge that faces every Bar examinee.

”Our country is in constant need of men and women who can rise to the challenge and become the vanguards of society. May this year's batch of Bar examinees keep the flame of justice and equality alive and burning. Mabuhay kayong lahat,” Escudero stressed.

At least 6,080 aspiring lawyers will take this year's Bar Examinations starting this Sunday.

The Bar exams will be held September 6, 13, 20 and 27 at the De La Salle University along Taft Avenue in Manila. The results are expected to come out in April 2010. (PNA) DCT/rudyma
