LAWYERS engage in disputes not just in a court of law – but also on the basketball court.
Attorneys’ show their competitive side on the basketball floor in the Advocatus League that opened last February 26 at the Meralco gym.
Featuring Manila-based lawyers who turn into weekend warriors, the league aims to build relations among lawyers and strengthen the legal industry.
“The Advocatus League is all about healthy competition so that as we challenge ourselves outside the legal arena, we build camaraderie based upon our love for the game and respect for each other,” tournament director and player Jang Moreno said.
The first season of the all-lawyers league drew eight teams with lawyers from law firms, associations, private companies, and government offices, such as Meralco, OSG, DENR, Sigma Rho, IBP Rizal, Divina Law Offices, Puno Law Offices, and Vasig Law Offices.
In the opening week, the league, powered by Kings of the Court, pitted Legall.ph and Litigators last Tuesday before hosting a Thursday doubleheader featuring DENR Lawyers Guild Inc. vs Sigma Rho Warriors and the Divina Law Offices vs Director’s Club.
This league may still be in its birthing stage, but several teams have already signified interest to join Season 2.
