Oca Malapitan congratulates 1st batch of UCC Law graduates
Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan is proud that the University of Caloocan City (UCC) College of Law has produced its first batch of graduates, four years after it opened its doors to aspiring abogados.
Malapitan graced the commencement exercises of the law school with UCC and local government officials.
In his speech, the mayor congratulated the six graduates who finished their legal education at UCC.
“Saludo ako sa inyong anim na mga magsisipagtapos. Sa kabila ng sitwasyon natin ngayon dulot ng pandemya, kayo ay nagpatuloy pa rin at nagsikap na makapagtapos ng abogasya,” he said.
“Sa darating ninyong Bar Exam, huwag ninyo sanang biguin ang ating lungsod. Palagi kayong magdasal sa ating Panginoon, magpatuloy sa inyong pagrereview, dala ang Caloocan pride, tiyak at tiwala akong makakapasa kayong lahat,” Malapitan added.
The mayor has promised a P1-million incentive to any of UCC Law’s six graduates should they pass the 2021 bar exam.
Out of 34 freshmen students, the following graduated from UCC Law: Sheena Hazel R. Belen, Rofel DC. Bughao, Roberto G. Damian Jr., Krizia E. Pia, Amiel R. Secretario, and Michael F. Villalon.
