The city chief executive extended his heartfelt congratulations to the graduates who are the first product of UCC Law.
“Saludo ako sa inyong anim na mga magsisipagtapos. Sa kabila ng sitwasyon natin ngayon dulot ng pandemya, kayo ay nagpatuloy pa rin at nagsikap na makapagtapos ng abogasya,” Mayor Oca said.
“Sa darating ninyong Bar Exam, huwag ninyo sanang biguin ang ating lungsod. Palagi kayong magdasal sa ating Panginoon, magpatuloy sa inyong pagrereview, dala ang Caloocan pride, tiyak at tiwala akong makakapasa kayong lahat,” he added.
Mayor Oca also promised a P1,000,000.00 cash incentive to the graduates if they will be able to pass the upcoming Bar Exam.
The UCC College of Law, the first Law School in CAMANAVA (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela), was opened in 2017 under the administration of Mayor Oca Malapitan and was fulfilled through an ordinance authored by Congressman Along Malapitan when he was a councilor.
