I am delighted to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the 2022 Bar passers, especially our very own Jennefer F. Estabillo, who made it to Number 22, and the 38 others who passed. This is a momentous occasion for our school, and I could not be prouder of our students and faculty.
It is my pleasure to share with you that Atty. Estabillo achieved an impressive grade of 86.3083% in the Bar exams. Her success is a testament to her hard work, dedication, and the quality legal education that our school provides. Our last topnotcher was Nyersen Dexter Tito Tualla, who ranked fourth in the 2005 Bar Examinations, 18 years ago. We are proud to have Atty. Tualla, a member of our faculty, and currently serving as the Presiding Judge of RTC branch 28 in San Fernando City, La Union.
This achievement reaffirms our position as one of the leading law schools in the country, and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students, faculty, and staff. It is a great honor for us to follow in the footsteps of our illustrious alumni, including Atty. Erlinda Arce Ignacio Espiritu, an MLQU School of Law alumna who was the first woman to receive an LL.M from Harvard School of Law. We honor Atty. Espiritu’s legacy by recognizing Atty. Estabillo, our topnotcher, who persevered through her studies while working.
Atty. Estabillo’s success is an inspiration to us all and a testament to her perseverance and dedication. This accomplishment is a significant milestone for our school, and we are proud to have played a part in helping our students reach their full potential.
This accomplishment marks a new era for the Manuel L. Quezon University School of Law, as we are now recognized as a law school of choice, particularly for working students. We will continue to uphold our commitment to providing quality legal education and to producing more successful and competent lawyers who will contribute to society with honor and integrity.
Once again, congratulations to all the 2022 BAR passers, and to Atty. Estabillo, our topnotcher. You have made us all proud.
