For the first time, a visually-impaired man passed the bar exam that was held last year.
University of Baguio (UB) Law School alumnus Anthony Mark Emocling made history for being the first blind bar passer in the country.
Emocling, who’s a son of a taxi driver, was also a cum laude graduate of Political Science at the same university.\
