University of the Philippines law student Christopher John Lao passed the 2011 Bar Exams. He is one of the 1,913 passers who are the newest lawyers of the country.
Lao became popular last year when he found himself at the receiving end of online mockery and sympathy for unwittingly driving his car into a flooded street at the height of typhoon Kabayan.
His interview in a news program became popular and went viral in Facebook and Twitter, where he trended for several days.
Extending his popularity, he also made a commercial for a bank's car loan product, featuring a parody of his experience.
An Ateneo de Manila University law graduate named Raoul Angelo Atadero topped the Bar, getting a rating of 89.536%. Check out the top 10 passers here, or the full list of passers here.
