We have a previous post entitled: Do you [still] want to become a lawyer. Law students are always told to stand their ground even under fire. A recent incident should perhaps give serious pause to those wanting to become lawyers. This is more than surviving the fire and pressure in the classroom or the courtroom, even.
Contrary to the expectation of many, lawyering is not an easy job.
Two lady lawyers came under fire, literally. Maybe you’ve heard of the two lady lawyers who are among the victims in the recent Maguindanao Massacre. Rest in peace, Attys. Connie Brizuela and Cynthia Oquendo. I’ve read that they were accompanying their client to the COMELEC to file the client’s Certificate of Candidacy. What should have been another day in work ends in death.
As to the barbarity of the massacre in Maguindanao, it’s beyond words . . .
