THE University of San Carlos in Cebu City will establish its smart classroom for law students after receiving sponsorship from a group of alumni.

A memorandum of agreement was recently signed by USC President Fr. Francisco Antonio Estepa and representative of USC Law Class of 1999.

Estepa thanked the benefactors and said that the donation would be a good legacy for the USC College of Law and for its students.

“This is very important because it will show how technology will be used in our teaching-learning process,” he said.

The smart classroom will be designed to simulate a law firm setting. It will be the first of its kind in the country.

Atty. Joseph Ladion, on behalf of the USC Law Class of 1999, also thanked the University.

“USC Law is amazing and we are doing this because we are very grateful and we are happy to be part of this institution,” Ladion said.

“With the advent of artificial intelligence, USC Law aims to strengthen its students’ soft skills by providing them with classes and classrooms that can make holistic legal education possible. As such, this project is part of the University’s thrust to make its law graduates work- and life-ready,” the school said.

The smart classroom donation is part of the USC R.I.S.E. Campaign, a university-wide fundraising initiative that aims to continue the Green and Gold Legacy by investing in research, infrastructure, and scholarship endowments.
