You really need to work hard because no amount of prayer or luck will make you pass the bar.”
27 year-old  Raoul Angelo Atadero was described by his superiors as quiet and unassuming, but very intelligent and insightful.

Like most other bar exam takers, Atadero had spent much of last year preparing for the grueling November tests conducted at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila.

He was glued to law books for up to 14 hours daily between April and November last year.

“I started studying mid-April all the way up to November. I get up at 7 a.m., start studying at 8 a.m. and continue until 9 p.m., including breaks for meals. It’s really pretty standard for bar takers,” Atadero said.

Congratulations Atty. Raoul Angelo Atadero!
