ILOILO City – West Visayas State University on Luna Street, La Paz district considers offering law courses.
It will take time – the university president himself acknowledged this.
But WVSU will push for this, said Dr. Luis Sorolla Jr. “Right now, we are working on the requirements.”
If they could fast-track the process, Sorolla said, the university could start accepting law students by the second semester of academic year 2018-2019 or the opening of the succeeding academic year.
“Indi nâ priority program sang CHED (Commission on Higher Education),” Sorolla said of the law program. “But we hope to get an exemption.”
The CHED administers and regulates higher education institutions in the Philippines, including state universities and colleges like WVSU.
Sorolla believes WVSU has a “very strong undergrad program on prelaw,” what with Bar topnotchers from local law schools finishing their political science degree at the university.
Meanwhile Sorolla said WVSU will have Library Science and Animation courses under the College of Information and Communications Technology by the opening of the academic year./PN
