Ateneo Law @ 75
I can’t help but be nostalgic from the hype of the Ateneo Law School’s 75th Anniversary. My years in law school is perhaps among the most memorable time of my life.
From it’s previous Padre Faura, Manila and H.V. Dela Costa Makati locations, the law school moved to its present site in Rockwell, Makati.

“The Guru of Destabilization” himself: Fr. Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J.
He was more than a Dean to us. He was a father, grandfather and friend to all.
But he can be a terror(ist) in class. I was never under his classes because I was enrolled in the afternoon/evening class. I often visited him in his office when there’s a new camera gadget or Apple product released. I also drop by to share with him photos I took during various school activities.

Law school will never be as memorable without my brods. The Gentlemen of the Fraternal Order of Utopia live by the codes of service, sacrifice and excellence.
The first Sunday morning of the 2005 Bar Exams. We were billeted at the Manila Diamond Hotel. In this photo we were having a buffet breakfast while reading the Ateneo “Blue Tips” ang the Utopia tips. Every single one of us was conditioned to to top the bar. We didn’t make it to the top 10. We all settled for number 11.
