The Dr. Jovito R. Salonga Center for Law and Development held a free seminar on relevant legal topics recently to officials of Barangay Tinago in Dumaguete City.
JSCLD conducts free seminars around the province throughout the school year. It aims to educate local government units and raise the appreciation of legal issues and procedures that are relevant to their line of work.
Different topics were discussed by volunteer-lecturers from the College of Law in Silliman, like Republic Act No. 9262 – Violence Against Women and Their Children by Anna Katrina Tan and Ceres Margaret Mangibin, “Libel/Defamation” by Adrian Vidal, “Marriage and its Requisites” by Joanne Cole Chua, and “RA 9165 – Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002” by Edcarl Cagandahan.
Volunteers from two other law schools, Foundation University and Negros Oriental State University, also shared their knowledge during the seminar.*RG
