92 new lawyers in the DILG are exhorted “to serve the people well.”

The 92 freshly minted attorneys of the agency were advised by Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos Jr. to always behave themselves properly and provide excellent service to the public.

The National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF), the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and the 15 new lawyers from the DILG Regional Offices who passed the 2022 bar exam were all commended by Abalos, a lawyer himself, and encouraged to use their legal skills to help the public and provide justice.

“As attorneys, it is our responsibility to see that justice is carried out honorably and without fear for the benefit of the populace,” marapat lamang na ating tiyakin na “ang hustisya ay ating maihatid nang walang takot at buong karangalan. The success of the nation as a whole depends on you. May this accomplishment serve as a source of inspiration and hope for our fellow Filipinos and inspire you to help those who are less fortunate, Abalos said in a statement on Tuesday.

Salutations to the new attorneys! Your lengthy but worthwhile path in the legal profession just got started. In order to foster unwavering faith in the nation’s judicial system, I urge every one of you to perform your profession with the utmost integrity.

Among the 15 employees of the DILG regional offices who passed the bar exam, he claimed, were Gerald A. Gallardo from Region 1, Salvacion Z. Baccay, Gmelina T. Manaligod, and Judy Mar S. Dela Cruz from Region 2, Maria Fatima L. Cruz from Region 3, Francisco Deocareza from Region 5, Drib Laurence B. Ingles, Jeffrey A. Lopez, Karen Ann Beniga, and Tereza Ruby N. Leprozo from Region 7,

“Taos-puso ko po kayong binabati sa ating mga kasama sa PNP, BJMP, BFP, Napolcom at NCMF. Patuloy kaisa at magtulungan po tayo sa pagtupad ng ating mga tungkulin sa bansa sa pamamagitan ng abogasiya (I heartily congratulate our colleagues in PNP, BJMP, BFP, Napolcom, and NCMF. Let’s be together and collaborate to uphold our legal obligations to the nation,” stated Abalos.

Abalos also advised the Department’s current and future attorneys to do their legal work with dignity both in person and online, in accordance with the modified “Code of Professional Responsibility and Accountability (CPRA),” which was just released by the Supreme Court (SC).

The 34-year-old “Code of Professional Responsibility” is being updated as part of SC’s plan to make it more responsive and up-to-date.

According to the Supreme Court, 3,992 out of 9,183 test takers, or 43.47 percent, passed the 2022 Bar exam.

On May 2, the examinees who passed will take their oaths at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City.

The Bar again used laptops and a special program to give the examinations rather than the customary pen and paper at numerous testing locations across the country.
