Hands on! Erap joins UST officials for start of Bar 2018
Manila mayor Joseph Estrada visited the University of Santo Tomas on Sunday even though it was supposed to be a day of rest to get updates on the conduct of the 2018 Bar examinations.
Estrada joined UST officials for breakfast on campus while over 8,000 examinees began the rigorous battery of tests they needed to pass to officially become a lawyer.
The breakfast at UST is an annual tradition held on the first day of the Bar exams.
In his speech, the mayor assured law school deans and other concerned groups that the local government made thorough preparations to ensure the security and safety of the examinees and the UST campus.
