Each Dean spoke about their respective law schools, including their institution’s history, student and faculty profiles, academic and value formation programs, and administration concerns and challenges.  The meeting was characterized with insightful discussions, helpful exchange of best practices, identification of areas of cooperation and collaboration as well as a convivial fellowship and dinner.

 
It was a very affable assembly of the top administrators of all the Jesuit Univeristy law schools in the Philippines with each one looking forward to further strengthening the natural common ties that run among them through a more formal organization of Philippine Jesuit law schools.
