Dean's Welcome Message

To the freshmen and transferees, welcome to San Sebastian College-Recoletos (SSC-R) College of Law!

We set out to reach our goals this school year. We aim to improve our performance in the Bar examination and to produce Bar topnotchers — a feat that is not alien to SSC-R College of Law. We shall only be limited by the handicap we put on ourselves.

With the objective of further improving the performance of our law graduates in the Bar examinations, we have crafted new policies that we have implemented in the College of Law last First Semester of Academic Year 2019-2020 such as the Advanced Bar Preparation Course and Retention Policy to be applied to fourth year students, scholarship grants, among others. We also expect that the Advanced Bar Preparation Course shall likewise complement the review subjects, and make it easier for students to pass review subjects.

While we are committed to support all of you, not only in your goal to obtain your Juris Doctor degrees, but to pass the Bar as well, it is imperative that you provide your indispensable cooperation. Regrettably, we cannot allow a student to take the Bar unless he or she has demonstrated that he/she possesses the level of preparation that would allow him or her to pass, hence, our retention policy.

To reiterate, it is not our objective to simply deny our students the opportunity to get a shot at the Bar. Our mission is simple – to support each one of you, to provide an atmosphere of learning, and to instill in you the Sebastinian passion for excellence.

Again, welcome to the wonderful world of SSC-R College of Law!
