Negros Oriental State University has also produced two new lawyers from its first batch of graduates of the College of Law. NORSU President Sojor announced lawyer Maria Theresa V. Rizon, a resident of Bayawan City, as successful bar examinees of 2009.
Carbo is a bookkeeper at the Landbank of the Philippines in Bayawan City, and teaches part time at NORSU Bayawan/Sta. Catalina Campus. Rizon is an alumna of the then Silliman University School of Communication and is currently secretary of the Sangguniang Panlungsod in Guihulngan.
Judge Temistocles Diez, former dean of the NORSU College of Law and current Dean Lawyer Pearl S. Estacion said they are very happy of the results of the first batch of Law graduates.
Five graduates took the Bar examinations in September last year. Dr. Sojor said that the State University, being a general-comprehensive University is mandated by its Charter, Republic Act 9299, Section 3 to offer Law among others.
NORSU’s passing average is pegged at 40 percent; while the national passing average is 24.58 percent of the total examinees.
