Illustration by Rey Ian M. CruzTHE OFFICE for Alumni Relations and the Faculty of Civil Law have launched their respective websites, with the former aiming to strengthen links with alumni and the latter seeking to help graduating students in the bar exams.

Civil Law unveiled its new website, which includes an updated electronic library with a databank of jurisprudence, legislations, and rules and issuances, last August 24.

The website, www.ustcivillaw.com, is open to Thomasian and even non-Thomasian law students and bar reviewers.

Civil Law Dean Nilo Divina said using the Internet would “help strengthen the foundation of the students and prepare them to the fast-paced realm of the outside world.”

Student-volunteers came up with digests of cases authored by the 2010 bar chairman, Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales.

Aside from the reviewer, the website also features updates on the faculty’s scholarship programs, dean’s listers, faculty profiles, details on legal aid and guidance counseling services, and information about student groups and organizations.

Meanwhile, the Office for Alumni Relations has introduced the Alumni Information System (AIS), to keep track of and gather information from UST graduates.

“The AIS will help alumni associations of different faculties and colleges to reach out to their graduates and will also help them to gather alumni information needed in accreditations, Alumni Relations Director Michael Malicsi said.

How to access AIS

To sign in to the AIS, alumni will have to visit the Alumni Relations website (http://ais.ust.edu.ph.) The applicant should have an e-mail address.

Upon signing in, the applicant has fill out a form. Information entered can be printed to a portable document format. The printed file can be used to apply for an alumni card which serves as a “pass” in the campus.

Malicsi said the AIS would also expand alumni career opportunities as it would allow the alumni office to disclose members’ information sheets to companies.

“It will allow [the alumni] to get regular updates from the University. We will e-mail them during their birthdays to greet them and we will always send them announcements,” Malicsi said. Charmaine M. Parado and Darenn G. Rodriguez
