SU produces 8 exemplary passers; gets 100% passing rate for first-time takers of Bar Exams 2020/21

The Silliman University (SU) College of Law produced 39 new lawyers, including eight exemplary bar passers, ranking No. 1 in the 2020/21 Bar Examinations under the 11 to 50 Bar Candidates category.

At the same time, the College of Law obtained a 100% passing rate for first-time takers.

In an announcement made this morning by the Office of the Bar Chairperson headed by Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Mario Victor F. Leonen, SU ranked No. 1 in the category of 11 to 50 bar candidates with a total of eight exemplary passers.

It was also announced that SU obtained a 100% passing rate for first-time takers under the same category. SU had a total of 29 first-time takers.

A total of 39 SU College of Law graduates passed the bar exams out of 44 candidates.

For the 2020-2021 bar examinations, the Supreme Court departed from tradition by not announcing the top 10 passers. Instead, an examinee who obtained an 85% or higher weighted score was recognized for exemplary performance.

The SU administration headed by President Betty Cernol McCann congratulates its graduates who successfully hurdled the 2020/2021 Bar Examinations that were held last February 4 and 6, 2022.
