Hard but fulfilling! VP Robredo gives hopeful message young, aspiring lawyers
Vice President Leni Robredo’s journey to becoming a lawyer wasn’t easy, so she knows what things are like for law students.
Robredo met with aspiring law students during the law school forum of Ateneo Lex recently and gave them some real talk, she said in a Facebook post.
According to her, entering law school was no joke, given the mountain of readings they have to finish and the difficult recitations and exams.
They would lack time and sleep, she added
But despite these, she said becoming a lawyer could also be very fulfilling because they can provide help to those who need it the most.
She said she was confident that these Atenistas would do their best should they enter law school, and hopes that when they do, they would help make the country better.
Let’s hope they make the future brighter!
“Nag-enjoy ako sa kuwentuhan kasama ang mga aspiring law students na dumalo ngayong araw sa Law School Forum ng Ateneo Lex! Hindi biro ang pagpasok sa law school—nandiyan ang dami ng babasahin at kailangang intindihin, hirap ng recitations at exams, at kakulangan sa tulog at oras para sa ibang bagay. But becoming a lawyer, especially for those who need help the most, can become one of the most fulfilling experiences. Kung magdesisyon man silang mag-law school, umaasa tayo na gagalingan ng mga Atenistang nakasama natin ngayon, at maging bahagi sana sila ng pagpapabuti ng ating bansa bilang mga bagong abogado sa takdang panahon,” Robredo posted.
