Let’s volt in! Top PH law schools join forces to support CJ Sereno
The alumni and members of top law schools in the country are standing by Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno. The abogados and the aspirants from University of the Philippines College of Law, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Adamson University, and De La Salle University College of Law issued a joint statement for the CJ.
The abogado group expressed concerns over the on-going attack against the judiciary’s independence. They reiterated the need to respect the integrity of the constitutional proceedings, regardless of the motivations and political intents.
The abogados also reiterated that law school taught them that there is only one way to unseat a chief justice and that is through impeachment. They encouraged Sereno’s critics and detractors to let the impeachment take its course if it is truly for the truth and fairness.
As an ending note, they appealed to the Senate to move with caution as it will set a crucial precedent to how all impeachment trials will go in the future. They also quoted Justice JBL Reyes and wrote” No Master but Law; No Guide but Conscience; No Aim but Justice.”
