Deanís Welcome Message
Welcome to the USC College of Law, the premier Law School outside Metro Manila.
Our college is one of the oldest law schools in the country. Established in 1937, USC College of Law has been and continues to be at the forefront of legal education and advancement of social change. Many of its graduates now occupying sensitive positions in the government have been known for being catalysts of change. We provide our students with the requisite tools to face the future as innovative thinkers, courageous champions of justice, and obedient servants of law.
We pride ourselves as the only law school in the South to be granted by the Supreme Court of the Philippines the privilege to have a Clinical Legal Education Program (CLEP) whereby our senior students are allowed to handle actual cases in the court with the assistance and under the guidance of a licensed member of the Bar. Likewise, we are the first law school outside the capital to be accredited by the Supreme Court to conduct Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) seminar for lawyers.
The USC College of Law is known to provide quality legal education to its students. It has consistently produced bar topnotchers and very high passing percentage in the Bar exams. Here in San Carlos, we endeavor to make the best out of our students. Our faculty and staff are among the finest to ensure that you will receive the kind of legal education that molds not just good lawyers, but excellent Catholic lawyers. We instill not only excellence but excellence with virtue.
Come join us and be part of the traditions of excellence the USC College of Law is known for.
