VG Lagman meets with newly minted Albayano lawyer


Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman has met with a newly-minted lawyer who traces her roots from Albay.

“Celebrating newly-minted lawyer, Atty. Karlene Erika Liao’s passing of the historic 2020-2021 Bar Exams as an exemplary passer,” Lagman said.

“She’s De La Salle University School of Law’s valedictorian. A proud daughter of Polangui and Tabaco City,” she said.

Last April, the Supreme Court released the results of the bar where a total of 8,241 examinees out of 11,402 passed the test or 72.28% national passing rate.

“With her devoted dad and my number one Polangui supporter Manoy John Liao lodi, her brother Kenneth Johnston Liao, sister Janela Liao, boyfriend Atty. Stephen, friends and the rest of the members of the Camposano and Liao families,” said Lagman.

For the first time in history, the Bar exam was administered digitally, with examinees bringing their own laptops.
