Solicitor General Visit
Last 1 March 2013, the Ateneo Law Journal welcomed into its humble law publications center, Atty. Francis H. Jardeleza, the current Solicitor General of the Republic of the Philippines.
Appointed in February 2012, Atty. Jardeleza graduated salutatorian and cum laude from the University of the Philippines College of Law, placed third in the 1977 Philippine Bar Examinations, and pursued a stellar law career. He, among other things, headed the ACCRALAW Litigation Department, practiced as a foreign associate in Sullivan and Cromwell, a New York-based firm, and joined San Miguel Corporation as its Senior Vice President and General Counsel.
Over brunch, Atty. Jardeleza shared with the members of the Board his journey with the law in both private and government practice and how the skills of an editor, which he himself honed as Vice Chairman of the Philippine Law Journal, are given much premium. He advised the members of the Board to encourage more students to join the Journal, and pass on the tradition of excellence.
