In a remarkable partnership, the University of the Philippines Baguio, alongside the UP Baguio Alumni Volunteers and Friends (UPAVF) and the UP Sigma Beta Sorority – Baguio, hosted a Legal Aid event on October 16, 2023 at the Iskolar ng Bayan Building, UP Baguio.
This Legal Aid initiative, in collaboration with the University of Baguio – School of Law, Saint Louis University – School of Law, and the Cordillera Career Development Colleges – College of Law, was organized under the auspices of the UP Baguio Alumni Relations Office. The UPAVF, primarily comprising legal professionals, were instrumental in bringing this event to fruition.
The public had the opportunity to access services, which included legal counseling, as well as the drafting and notarization of simple oaths and affidavits, offering crucial legal support to those in need.
Furthermore, the collaboration with SLU, UB, and CCDC marked the beginning of potential opportunities to serve the community. This partnership signified a step toward a more robust commitment to addressing legal needs in the region.
