UP Law class ’76 marks 40th year
The alumni of the University of the Philippines College of Law will hold their annual homecoming and reunion on Nov. 25 at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La with the Class of 1991 as host.
Among the celebrating alumni are this year’s Ruby Jubilarians, the Class of 1976, who will mark their 40th year of graduation from the college, the first batch of post-martial law graduates.
Led by class president Vicki delos Reyes, the class boasts of outstanding members, including three justices of the Sandiganbayan and the Court of Appeals, three regional trial court, one university president, three law school deans and several prominent practitioners, law lecturers, and executives of big corporations, banks and government offices.
The Class of ‘76 is putting up a coffee-table book titled ‘‘Present Perfect’’ to memorialize the four decades of their contribution to the legal profession and the nation’s development in general.
The book’s editors, lawyers Jorge Cabildo, Moises Tolentino Jr., Dave Simon, Willy Trinidad, Randy Salazar and Lucien Sayuno announced that the class has also put up a special souvenir publication which carries a complete list of UP Law graduates from 1913 to 2016.
To be distributed free to attendees at the homecoming event, the publication will serve as the contribution of Class ’76 to this year’s UP Law alumni get-together celebration./rga
