History

Consistent with the desire of the Chairman of the PUP Board of Regents to open the College of Law in the first semester of school year 2001-2002, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Dean of the College of Accountancy and Law and the Chairperson of the Department of Law met in the early part of May 2001 to finalize the proposal to approve the establishment of the PUP College of Law.

In January 2001, the University President instructed the Dean of the College of Accountancy and Law to conduct a study and prepare the proposal for the establishment of the College of Law in line with the pertinent provisions of DECS Order No. 27, otherwise known as the “Policies and Standards for Legal Education” and CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 46, s. 1996 (the Policy and Program Deregulations vis-a-vis Higher Education Institutions).

Immediately thereafter, the desired proposal was submitted to the University Academic Council, which in turn endorsed the establishment of the College of Law to the PUP Board of Regents in its letter dated May 25, 2001.

On the same date, the PUP Board of Regents approved Resolution No. 115, Series of 2001, entitled: “RESOLUTION APPROVING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COLEGE OF LAW.”
