OLA Apprenticeship
July 12, 2016 Tuesday
10 AM: Started the OLA Apprenticeship with a General Orientation by Atty. Gimenez, our mentor. My
classmates and I were each assigned a specific topic to be condensed into a module which would be used as a
reference material for the OLA. I was tasked to make a module on the Corporation Code, to be submitted at the
end of the OLA duty. After the orientation, I proceeded to the library to look for resource materials to start my
module.
12:00 PM: Atty. Gimenez requested us to help a number of undergraduate students with their report on
Obligations and Contracts. The students took turns in asking us questions on areas which they found difficult or
obscure so that they can understand and thus present their reports better.
2:00 PM: I continued my research and started making the module on Corporation Code. Reported to Atty.
Gimenez about status of tasks.
