E. The College of Law: Committed to excellence. Impassioned to serve.

De La Salle University aims to contribute to the development

of future leaders in the legal profession with the establishment
of the College of Law. The DLSU Juris Doctor (JD) program
offers a multi-disciplinary approach to learning, developing in
law students the research and communication competence to
practice the profession. An outstanding corps of faculty will
provide hands-on mentoring throughout the program, to fully
prepare the small but select group of students for the Bar

The program will also provide for the enrichment and enhancement of the communication
skills of the students, to enable them to confidently and competently establish themselves
in the legal profession.

Legal aid and externship programs will expose these students to La Salle’s national and
international network of communities, organizations, as well as linkages with law firms.

While following a curriculum mandated by the Supreme Court and the Commission on
Higher Education, the program also underscores the teaching of human rights, which will
be offered as an elective and infused in core courses. The many reputable programs of
DLSU, including economics, engineering, information technology, sciences, and the arts, are
valuable resources for legal research undertakings.

At the heart of the program is the University’s tradition of excellence and service. By
developing in tomorrow’s lawyers the compassion and commitment to promote and uphold
the rights of every individual and to protect the environment, the College of Law of De La
Salle University brings to reality a path breaking vision, with a passion to transform lives.

• To place it in the forefront of excellence, a list of names of invited students

from the institution has been posted at the bulletin board in the first floor of
