It is with deep regret that we inform the community that our beloved Prof. Arturo E. Balbastro peacefully joined his Creator on 28 September 2020 at the age of 90. Prof. Balbastro was a long time faculty of the UP College of Law, Founding Director of the OLA, and Holder of the Quintin Paredes Professorial Chair in Remedial Law. An authority in both Remedial and Commercial Law, Prof. Balbastro was also Dean of San Sebastian College Recoletos – College of Law. He was a member of the UP Law Class of 1955 and obtained two LL.M. degrees, one from UP Law and another from Harvard Law School. He is survived by his son Nonoy (UP Law Class ’93), his daughters-in-law Jaja and Carmela, and his grandchildren Alex/Violet and Enzo.
We thank profoundly Prof. Balbastro for his many years of selfless and devoted teaching and mentoring of many generations of students of the UP College of Law. We pray for the repose of his soul.
