As the start of the academic year approaches, the School of Law at Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) is all set to welcome incoming freshmen and those aspiring to pursue a legal education. To ensure that these students are well-prepared and informed about the exciting journey they are about to embark upon, the School of Law recently organized a lecture series on Introduction to Law.
The lecture series was designed to provide a glimpse into the world of law, giving prospective law students a taste of what awaits them in their legal studies. One of the highlights of this series was the inclusion of mock classes on two fundamental law subjects — Remedial Law and Civil Law. These mock classes allowed participants to experience the dynamics of a real law classroom, giving them a glimpse of the Socratic method and the intellectual rigor that legal education demands.
Continuing the preparation process, the School of Law went a step further and organized two separate town hall meetings – one for the esteemed law faculty and another for both the incoming freshmen and upper-class students.
The faculty town hall meeting focused on essential aspects of the upcoming semester, including the schedule of classes, updates on the new Academic Information Management System, and clarification on academic policies. This interaction provided a platform for faculty members to address any queries and concerns that might arise, ensuring a seamless academic experience for all students.
On the other hand, the student town hall meeting proved to be an invaluable event for the incoming freshmen and upper-class students. In this gathering, the school highlighted crucial details about the new Academic Information and Management System and various academic policies. Areas covered during the session included attendance requirements, the grading system, retention standards, and the qualifications for earning the prestigious Dean’s List and other Academic Awards.
Moreover, the student town hall meeting celebrated academic excellence by recognizing outstanding students who demonstrated exceptional performance during the previous semester. This gesture not only inspired the recipients but also motivated others to strive for excellence in their studies.
Apart from serving as an informative platform, the student town hall meeting also facilitated bonding and camaraderie among students. As the School of Law is set to commence its classes earlier than the other program, starting on July 25, this gathering provided an excellent opportunity for students to get to know their peers and foster a supportive academic community.
MLQU’s School of Law takes great pride in providing a nurturing and supportive environment for aspiring legal minds. These preparatory initiatives showcase the institution’s commitment to fostering a well-rounded education and empowering students for success in their legal careers.
As the academic year draws near, the School of Law at MLQU eagerly awaits the arrival of its new batch of future legal practitioners. By conducting these preparatory activities, the School has demonstrated its dedication to helping these students make an informed decision about their legal journey and provided the groundwork for a fulfilling and rewarding academic experience.
The School of Law’s message to the incoming freshmen and aspiring law students is clear – you are valued, supported, and well-prepared to take on the challenges of legal education and excel in your pursuit of justice and knowledge. Welcome to the esteemed MLQU School of Law Family!
