After Law Degree Proves Elusive, A Sterling Law Enforcement Career & Two Exceptional Sons Provide Distinctive Redemption

Cipriano E. Aquino and sons, Honorato and Pedro Y. Aquino

And they preceded each other in the ranking. Pedro Y. Aquino who attended the Far Eastern University law school (FEU) was second, while Arthur E. Galace of the BCF College of Law placed third.

Thirteen years earlier, Pedro's older brother Honorato who graduated Magna cum laude from the BCF College of Law placed eighth in the 1963 Bar Examinations and was preceded by another lawyer of distinction, Rene V. Saguisag, who placed seventh.
