The peering questions of the board of judges at the Supreme Court’s inner sanctum, the midnight toil of the screening panel, the scholarship prizes given by our…

Unique, however, are the full scholarships (P200,000 per year covering tuition, books and monthly stipends) granted by the Foundation for Liberty and Prosperity (FLP) and funded by the Tan Yan Kee Foundation (TYKF). They are given on the basis of pure merit; paucity of funds will be considered only in case of equality in excellence. They are granted to outstanding law students who agree to espouse,…
