One of the last subjects which Dean (Atty.) Eduardo Sanson continually handles amongst any graduating class of the College of Law (Claw) in Western Mindanao State University (WMSU), is the Legal Counseling and Social Responsibility. Dean Ed is an authority to the subject, obviously because of his exemplary track record in the legal profession.
Now, part of the requirements, to complete the subject, is the necessary exposure of the students to the public,as to endeavor a legal counseling to the latter. Such is a social responsibility to any law student and even lawyers—to provide legal insights, particularly to one’s rights which areexpressly provided by the Constitution itself.
On February 10, 2017 the three sections—A, B, and C, of the senior law students in WMSU, conducted a two separate activities in Baliwasan Central School (BSC) and to Haven for Women of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in San Roque. The number of law students who participated were around 150, such comprised the 3 said sections mentioned.
Sections A and B were assigned to conduct a seminar workshop in BSC. The topic was based on the Anti-Bullying of 2013, or the commonly known RA 10627. The grades 5 and 6 of the same school were sent by the administration to attend the seminar workshop, which was held in the BSC’s open-court.
A hundred pupil intently absorbed the lecture. Of course, the law students would have to employ some strategy to fully get the attention of the pupils.Those who were assigned to deliver the topics were law students, who are teachers themselves also by profession; they were Miss Krytel T. Rubio, Miss Aenn Bernielee C. Limbaga and Miss Pearl Marjorie Vidal.
There was also a poster-making competition. It is amazing to see that pupils, in their young age, do understand already and clearly the crisis of bullying amongst schools. Thus, the BCS pupils were able to produce quite great posters, depicting emphatically anti-bullying strategies to battle such known crisis.
Meanwhile, in the afternoon of that same day was scheduled for section C, to bring along groceries and other handy give-away to the women at Haven for Womenin San Roque. The latter are abused women who are undergoing treatment, counselling and physical help by the DSWD. The former contributed certain amount, as to produce the needed resource for the said groceries, they gave-away to the women.
Dean Ed pounds:to the heart and mind of any law student, in WMSU,should be inculcated that to be a lawyer is not just a profession, but also a moral obligation to help the weak, the oppressed and the vulnerable. Art. 19 of the New Civil Code, according to Dean Ed, is the heartand soul of the legal profession, to wit: “Every person must, in the exercise of his rights and in the performance of his duties, act with justice, give everyone his due and observe honesty and good faith.” (berliegestayap)
