A delegation from the University of Málaga and the University of Deusto visited UP on June 4, 2018 to strengthen a graduate academic exchange project in Law for the former and to explore ties for the latter. The delegation met with UP President Danilo Concepcion and UP College of Law representatives.
Concepcion signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the University of Málaga, represented by its School of Law Dean Juan Jose Hinojosa Torralvo, to supplement the academic exchange project with provisions for a Master of Law student exchange.
The University of Deusto was represented by its School of Law Dean Gema Tomas Martinez.
UP College of Law Dean Fides Cordero-Tan welcomed the delegates, while UP legal educators Ruben Balane, Solomon Lumba, and Ryan Oliva attended the informal meeting and witnessed the MOA signing.
Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) School of Law Dean Sedfrey Candelaria was also present. ADMU is the other Philippine member university of the academic exchange project, which is under the Erasmus Programme.
Concepcion said the UP College of Law will offer next year a Master of Law course at the UP Professional Schools-Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, which the delegates also visited.
“I’m looking forward to stronger relationships of our schools, and hopefully, with the University of Deusto, and some more Spanish schools,” Concepcion said. (Jo. Lontoc, UP MPRO)
