"Future lawyers should uphold dignity"

Malacañang on Sunday urged Bar examinees to “uphold the integrity and dignity” of the legal profession, saying that it is the “real challenge” after passing the month-long examinations. Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo issued the statement as he wished future lawyers good luck on the first day of the Bar examinations.

Salvador "Sal" San Buenaventura Panelo is a Filipino lawyer from the province of Camarines Sur, Philippines. He is the Chief Legal Counsel of President Rodrigo Duterte from 2016 to 2018, who also served as the former Davao City Mayor's legal adviser during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Salvador Panelo will serve both as presidential spokesman and chief presidential legal counsel until President Rodrigo Duterte finds a replacement for the latter position. "Tutal tiga-announce man lang 'yan si Sal Panelo. With all sartorial elegance, medyo maganda siguro tingnan," Duterte had said, referring to Panelo's flamboyant sense of style. (Anyway, he will just make announcements, Sal Panelo. With all the sartorial elegance, it will look good.) Thus, Panelo will be both spokesman and chief presidential legal counsel while Duterte looks for another appointee for the post that Panelo will vacate.
