UC School of Law Holds Virtual Graduation for the Class of 2020

Cebu City — The University of Cebu School of Law (UC Law) decided to get creative in honoring the success of the class of 2020 by holding a virtual graduation ceremony – a first in the country among law schools – to mark the end of the academic year 2019-2020. This year’s graduation theme – Building Resilience. Overcoming Adversity. Achieving Success. – reflects the determination and grit shown by the graduating class even in the midst of a crisis.

Dean Marisol DL. Anenias, the incumbent President of the Philippine Association of Law Schools, delivered this year’s keynote address during the commencement ceremony. Leading the Class of 2020 is Mr. Calvin Klein E. Lianza, C.P.A. who delivered his Valedictory Address while Mr. Carmelito D. Clabisellas, Jr., Voice of the Class of 2020 also gave the response ono behalf of the batch. Other guests who joined the virtual ceremony, albeit virtually are UC President Atty. Augusto W. Go, University Chancellor Candice Gotianuy, Dean Ofelia G. Maña and Atty. Manuel Elijah J. Sarausad. Members of the UC Law Faculty led by Dean Al-Shwaid L. Ismael were also present to show support to their students. The watch party was composed of alumni, students, and the families and friends of the graduates through an online live stream of the ceremony via Facebook.

The UC Community also celebrates the regionalization of the 2020 Bar Examinations wherein, for the first time in the bar exam history, Cebu will be a venue of the month-long exam. UC, along with other Visayas and Mindanao law schools, are excited and grateful that the Supreme Court has finally granted this request after years of lobbying the idea. The 2020 Bar Examinations, which has been dubbed as the #BestBarEver with Hon. Mario Victor “Marvic” Leonen as the Bar Chairperson, will now be held sometime in 2021.

The holding of the first-ever virtual graduation is UC Law’s way of embracing the challenge of change, building opportunities in the face of adversity, and transforming challenges into Success.

The University of Cebu Social Work Department of the College of Liberal Arts launched its student internship program and held an academic ‘trialogue’ with its partner agencies at the UC Main Campus, Cebu City.

After the oath taking of student interns, the stakeholders from the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Rise Above Foundation, Eversley Child Sanitarium, Cebu Caritas Inc., and Christ for Asia International initiated a discussion on how to improve the curriculum in response to the demands of the industry and the needs of the rapidly-changing Philippine and global society.

UC students graduate as CPAs

University of Cebu accountancy students graduated as Certified Public Accountants and experienced a perfect graduation day. The students achieved this feat through hard work and with the guidance and support from the UC faculty and administration.

Usually, students graduate first before reviewing for the CPA board examinations. But these students from the University of Cebu Banilad Campus College of Business and Accountancy became CPAs first before their graduation ceremony.

As early as May 2013, Sheena Fernan, Jan Erika Go, Camille Anne Garcia, Wenceslao Pepito, Katrina Montenegro, Marilyn Escabas, Lowell Lloyd Cañete, and Ronalyn Alaraz, started their final semester in accountancy. This gave them a month’s leeway in finishing their course requirements and preparing for their board exams.

They took the CPA board exam last October 5, 6, 12 and 13, 2013 and the results were released on October 21. They all passed with flying colors. The Professional Regulation Commission said 4,246 out of 10,396 passed the Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination this October 2013.

So it was another perfect graduation for these students as they walked up the stage on their Graduation Ceremony last October 24, 2013 at the University of Cebu Maritime Education and Training Center in Mambaling, Cebu City.

Their college chairman and mentor Mr. Cris Biore said, “This is a real outcome immediately upon graduation. It is a huge help to their parents in its truest sense, as their children can practice their profession right away; giving honor and fulfillment to their years of struggle.”
