UST FACULTY of Civil Law Dean Nilo Divina encouraged bar examinees to not be afraid of experiencing “pain” or sacrifice, as one cannot be successful without it.

Quoting Opus Dei founder Saint Josemaría Escrivá’, Divina said pain is part of success, as “no ideal becomes a reality without sacrifice.”

In a Facebook post, Divina also used “pain” as an acronym for prudence, action, “I” for others and nobility.

“No one becomes a lawyer by just wishing for or praying for it. No wish ever comes true unless it is complemented by action,” Divina’s message read.

“Fight with all your might so that after the bar exam, you too, like St. Paul can say: ‘We have fought a good fight. We have finished the race. We have kept the faith,'” he added.

This year, UST will host the exams for the ninth year in a row. A total of 8,245 aspiring lawyers will take the exams on the four Sundays of November, according to the Supreme Court Public Information Office.

The examinations, all essay questions, cover political law, labor law, civil law, taxation, mercantile law, criminal law, remedial law and legal and judicial ethics.
