J. Bersamin to bar takers: "See you in Philippine Arena next year"

Apparently, new lawyers' oath taking in 2018 will be in the Philippine Arena. 2017 Bar Chairman and Associate Justice Lucas Bersamin spilled the beans on where the 2018 oath-taking of lawyers will be held next year. It should be remembered that the Philippine Arena has a capacity of 55,000 people. 100% passing rate? Based on a report from the Office of the Bar Confidant (OBC), out of the 7,227 candidates, which is higher compared to last year’s 6,831, only 6,354 finished the first of the four Sundays of the bar exam. “Statistics: 7,227 were admitted to take the bar; after first Sunday, only 6,759 remained; as of third Sunday leading into Sunday’s (November 26) last two exams, there are now only 6,750 examinees,” the SC Public Information Office’s Twitter post read. (At most 6,750 out of 7,227 applicants take 2017 bar exam By Philippine News Agency | November 26, 2017, 7:07 PM; http://www.interaksyon.com/at-most-6750-out-of-7227-applicants-take-2017-bar-exam/)

6,750 passers x 10 family members and relatives = 67,500.
The Philippine Arena is a multipurpose indoor arena at Ciudad de Victoria, a 140-hectare tourism enterprise zone in Bocaue and Santa Maria, Bulacan, Philippines. With a maximum seating capacity of 51,898, the Philippine Arena is the world's largest indoor arena.
