EDWIN Sandoval, a lawyer who taught at the UST Faculty of Civil Law for 26 years, passed away on May 19 at the age of 73. 

His death was announced by the faculty in an article on its website. 

“[He was] a beloved mentor and pillar of the UST Faculty of Civil Law,” it read. “His invaluable contributions to the legal community have left an indelible mark on countless lives and the profession.”

Sandoval earned his law degree at Far Eastern University Institute of Law, where he graduated at the top of his class in 1991.

He taught political law review at UST for over two decades. He was also a faculty member at Arellano University, San Beda University, and Adamson University.

Dean Nilo Divina of the Faculty of Civil Law, in an interview with the Varsitarian, described the late lawyer as an “excellent professor” and  “wonderful person.”

Apart from working at the academe, Sandoval also served as a lecturer in bar review centers. 

Former Central Student Council president Nathan Agustin, who was a student of Sandoval at the Faculty of Civil Law, remembered the late lawyer as an effective educator who never failed to inject humor into his lectures. 

“You’ll definitely know that he was the type of educator who had inspired generations of lawyers,” Agustin said. 

“He really loves teaching and getting to know his students. He can make you understand a topic that would usually take days to grasp in just thirty minutes and would even sneak in jokes here and there to make the class jolly,” he added.

Sandoval’s wake was held at St. Peter Memorial Chapel in Quezon City from May 22 to 26.
