LEB chair defends San Beda law dean
Legal Education Board chair EJ Aquende came to the defense of San Beda College of Law dean and priest Ranhilio Aquino.
Critics have been challenging the credibility of Fr. Ranhilio, member of the consultative committee on the draft charter, to hold the law school deanship because he didn’t take the bar and became a lawyer.
Aquende made a rundown of the priest’s credentials in a Facebook post:
“The dean and faculty members are not required to be lawyers, but must be legal academics and scholars, which Fr Aquino is,” he said.
