THE Graduate School of Law of the University of Santo Tomas partnered with the College of Law of the Father Saturnino Urios University to offer their alumni and staff the opportunity to pursue a Master of Laws at UST.

A memorandum of agreement was signed between officials of UST-GSL and FSSU law earlier this week.

FSUU College of Law Dean Atty. Rodney C. Ato, who is an alumnus of UST Civil Law, expressed his gratitude to GSL.

Ato also underscored that the formalized partnership with UST “will give the people in Butuan City and also in the CARAGA region a chance to adjust and discover more in the legal profession.”

“As members of the legal profession, we embrace a life-long learning to stay curious and engage with the evolving landscape of law and society,” Atty. Ato said.

GSL Dean Jacqueline O. Lopez-Kaw, DCL, said that the partnership between FSUU marks the culmination of their collaborative efforts “in advancing legal education and fostering academic cooperation within institutions.”

“This joint effort will make our prospective students more competent in the practice of legal profession, including teaching in the academe. This partnership reaffirms the Graduate School of Law’s commitment to cultivate the next generations of legal scholars, advocates, and leaders,” Kaw said.
