Law

The College of Law was one of the first two colleges of the Lyceum of the Philippines when it opened in Intramuros in 1952. Our founder, Jose P. Laurel envisioned an “academy for the ascertainment of truth: the ultimate object of intellectual exertion... for the search and promulgation of truth as an imperative and moral obligation.” This ideal seems to apply specifically to this college.

The College of Law has various certifications received; it was granted Autonomous Status and IQuAME A(t) by College of Law CHED, Certified ISO 9001: 2008 and is a Supreme Court-Certified MCLE Provider. It follows a curriculum mandated by the Supreme Court and the Commission of Higher Education, with emphasis on teaching human rights, legal research and communication to produce students with the drive to uphold and defend people’s rights and liberties, enabling them to establish themselves in the legal profession someday. Very likely, the faculty of eminent legal luminaries mentors the students to prepare them for the bar exams.
