Greetings of peace!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the School of Law, the first state-run School of Law in the Davao Region.
A neophyte in the arena of Legal Education, together with our competent educators, it is our mission to produce lawyers who are conflict-transformative and conflict-sensitive.
In line with USeP’s core values – unity, stewardship, excellence, and professionalism - we imagine our granduands to be champions of the poor, the oppressed, and the marginalized whilst adept in using the law as a tool for peace-building & problem solving.
The USeP School of Law aims to be in the forefront of the standards in legal education by providing a different approach in learning and unlearning. Our Juris Doctor Program takes on the outcomes-based framework and includes a thesis that would eventually feed in to government agencies or to local or national congress to become a policy. Moreover, our Law program includes an internship to afford a contextualized legal education.
I hope that as you browse through the contents in this website, you’d know that there are so many things we can offer. Journey with us in our growth as a community.
The University of Southeastern Philippines School of Law is the brainchild of a thorough study that aimed to establish the very first state-run law school in Davao region.
Officially opened in 2019, the 172-unit School of Law aims to provide a novel approach in providing quality yet affordable education. The Juris Doctor (JD) Degree is designed to provide the students an avenue to grow holistically by becoming one with the less-privileged.
In line with USeP’s vision of becoming the premiere research university in the ASEAN, our JD program includes a thesis course which we hope to be translated into local and national policies. As a State University, it is fitting that an internship in government agencies or non-government organizations is added in the program to give students an opportunity to practice what they have learned in class.
