  • Description:

    My studies in political law have been triggered by what I considered my duty as an academic and as a student both of philosophy and of the law to join in national exchanges on issues of the day. Silence, whether it be motivated by considerations of occupational security or fear of disfavor by the gods, is a luxury we cannot afford.

    I have also included here hypothetical questions with their proposed answers that I used in my Political Law classes
    at the law school of which my mother, Attorney Leticia P. Callangan-Aquino, was dean – the Tuguegarao Extension of the Aquinas University College of Law. For this, I thank Chair Emerson Aquende of the Legal Education Board who, as dean of Aquinas University Law at that time, accommodated this arrangement. Modest a law school the Tuguegarao Extension might have been, it crowned my late mother’s career in law that she made successful Bar-passers of her students. I also thank Dr. Wilma Roa-Guzman and the late Dr. Ronald P. Guzman for having allowed use of their building and facilities at the Medical Colleges of Northern Philippines – International School of Asia and the Pacific for the law extension program.
