ATENEO LAW SCHOOL MEMORIES

One of my close friends in Law School was Cesar Villanueva (the current Dean) who was so studious and conscientious he would practically open the library every morning.  Cesar would painstakingly read all the original cases that were assigned for the day and digest them for class.  By the time most of us arrived in school at about three in the afternoon, he would have finished the digest which he would then generously share with us.  It was a known fact then that a Cesar Villanueva digest was so good it was as if you actually read the original cases.  However, one day a professor, perhaps knowing that we were so dependent on Cesar’s digest, wittingly asked the class for the dissenting opinion on the case.  Unfortunately, Cesar did not digest the dissenting opinion.
