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.
