The Legal Education Board (LEB) headed by its chairman, Emerson L. Aquende together with the other four-members met en banc last June 6, 2018 and resolved to grant a permit to EAC-C, to offer a Bachelor of Laws at its campus in Dasmarinas City, Cavite adding a new chapter in the history of Emilio Aguinaldo College. With the Institute of Law and Justice, Emilio Aguinaldo College is staking out new territory by firmly grounding its Law program in the context of its aim of a just society. With well established law programs in Metro-Manila, this new program will require a capital campaign for EAC-C.
At the center of the Institute of Law and Justice, is its incoming dean, Atty. Shennan Sy. Attorney Sy has an impressive academic record. He took his BS Accountancy at the De LaSalle University and placed 7th in the CPA Board Exams in 1991. He then took up Law at the Ateneo De Manila University and figured prominently at 6th place during the 1995 Bar Exams. Atty Sy graduated from the University of Michigan in 2002 as a Clyde A. Dewitt Fellow and Fulbright Scholar with a Master of Laws Degree. He completed the Foundations of American Law and Legal Education course at Georgetown University Law Center in 2001.
Attorney Sy has an extensive law practice and is currently a partner at the law firm, Kalaw, Sy, Selva and Campos.
The Institute of Law and Justice will occupy a sleek and well-designed five level building. The School of Law Academic committee has completed its preparation on the curriculum, books, journals and the faculty roster.
It would be an understatement to say that here at EAC-C, we have something we are really excited about, as we are on the verge of entering a sacred space where we can be seen, acknowledged and bring new voices. We hope that we can cast some enthusiasm into the challenges that lie ahead. Our mission says that law and justice are vital to living and our society. We want to live and breathe that mission for years to come.
