PLM: Ranked 6th-best in 2019 Bar exams
WITH much pride, the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila ( PLM) announced that it ranked as the sixth- best performing school in the 2019 Bar examinations.
PLM recognizes the dedication and diligence of the country’s new lawyers, whose strong performances in last year’s exams kept the university as one of the top institutions among 200 law schools in the country.
The Legal Education Board ( LEB), which super vises law schools in the Philippines, awarded a plaque of recognition to the PLM College of Law on November 11 to mark the milestone.
PLM posted a 55.88- percent passing rate— among the highest compared to schools with fewer than 63 examinees. Of the 2,103 Bar passers last year, 19 were PLM graduates. They were sworn in by Supreme Court justices through a
videoconference in June.
The LEB acknowledged the hard work the faculty members, students, and staff have been instrumental in educating the country’s future lawyers.
“Congratulations, Dean George
Garcia and to the faculty, students and staff of the PLM College of Law! Your efforts are now getting the results that your college truly deserves,” PLM’S President Emmanuel Leyco said. “The university takes pride in this recognition from the [LEB] and your continued adherence to excellence in serving the public interest.”
He added, “This is indeed uplifting, as the country continues to go through difficult times from the pandemic, economic dislocations and now, destructive typhoons. Thank you for making PLM prouder!”
PLM has managed to keep its average passing rate consistently higher than the national average in recent years. It is a premier public university which has produced graduates who have contributed to nation- building since 1965. For more information, visit plm. edu. ph.
