THE PHILIPPINE Association of Law Schools (PALS) elected UST Faculty of Civil Law Dean Nilo Divina as president, late last year in their annual meeting at Waterfront Insular Hotel, Davao City.

In his four years as the University's representative to the official organization of law schools in the Philippines, Divina held the positions vice president for Metro Manila in 2010-2011 and secretary general in 2011-2012.

In the recent election, Divina was unanimously selected to preside over the 128-member association consisting of deans of law schools in the country.

Divina, in his acceptance speech, said he would work to further strenghten the foundation of legal education through sharing of resources among all law schools and faculty development programs, as well as to prepare law students in meeting the demands of globalization in line of the 2015 ASEAN integration.

Last February 21, Divina delivered his Foundation for Liberty and Prosperity professorial lecture titled "The Unpaid Creditor vs the Distressed Debtor" wherein he gave proposals to standardize and promote fairness and equity in the crediotr-debtor relationship.

Former Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban, chairman of the foundation, was present in Divina's lecture. Kristelle Ann A. Batchelor
