    The book provides quick and easy access to up-to-date and settled legal opinions of Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and jurisprudential pronouncements of the Supreme Court on recurring legal issues affecting local governance.

    The book addresses the common and familiar legal issues that local governance practitioners have to deal with in their day-to-day activities. It cites actual legal controversies at the local government level with succinct discussion on the official position of DILG and decisions of the Supreme Court.

    Though presented in reader-friendly format, some crucial topics had been given detailed treatment, making it a useful quick reference guide to all local officials and the reading public with continuing interest in the legal aspect of local governance.

    DILG Undersecretary Austere A. Panadero, in his foreword, stressed that “ what makes this document truly admirable is its being reader friendly, that is, making legal issues and usual jargons we often see in similar publications easily understood by even those whose exposure to law is at minimal, if not none at all”.

    Atty. Jesus B. Doque IV, Bureau Chief of Legal Service, DILG Central Office, opines that the book “is a welcome development in making the provisions of the Local Government Code and other related laws more understandable to those who are to obey the same”.
