MANILA, Philippines – Miss International Philippines 2019 Bea Patricia “Patch” Magtanong signed the Roll of Attorney at the Supreme Court of the Philippines.
Wearing a blue-and-beige modern Filipinana, Magtanong arrived at the Supreme Court without much fanfare. By law, a Bar passer can only practice Law only after she signs the Roll of Attorney.
By signing the roll of attorney, she is now officially admitted to the bar. Magtanong, whose name now appears to Supreme Court records, has become a member of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP). The IBP is an organization of all lawyers whose name appeared at the Supreme Court’s Roll of Attorneys.
It is important for lawyers to sign the roll of attorney before they can officially be called “Attorney’.
